    After a quick search, It would appear that he is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

    There are some items that appear to have been tossed into this pile of militaria.
    Who really knows where or when he or someone else could have picked up
    or added all the extra patches and insignias. Too bad there are no 'meaty'
    items included with the group - like medals or pieces of uniform.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
