TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The Southern Arizona Missing in America Project (MIAP) will honor and inter 33 veterans who were homeless, unclaimed or indigent on Saturday, April 27.

The ceremony is open to the public.

The veterans to be interred served in the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. The ceremony, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Arizona Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery at 15950 North Luckett Road, Marana, 85653, will include military honors, last roll call and more before the veterans are settled in their final resting place.

A similar interment ceremony was held in October 2018 for 33 veterans who were homeless, unclaimed or indigent at the AZ Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery. The Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services partners with the MIAP to honor deceased veterans and their families throughout the year.

The MIAP has interred more than 3,900 veterans across the U.S. Their focus is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed remains of American veterans.
