Dozens Attend Funeral To Honor Homeless Veteran With No Known Family

Dozens of people came to Marshalltown, Iowa, to honor Charles Lanam, a Korean War veteran who died last week with no known family left.

A homeless Navy veteran who died with no known family received an outpouring of support at his memorial service Monday.

Dozens of people came to Marshalltown, Iowa, to honor Korean War veteran Charles Lanam after a funeral home director’s Facebook post about his situation went viral.

Funeral home director Jordan Borcherding told The Des Moines Register, "This man served our country honorably and we should honorably serve him with a funeral."

Attendees said they were proud of the way their community rallied to honor a veteran whom most of them never even met.
