Dayton Vietnam veteran funeral
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A military veteran from Dayton who twice survived being shot down in helicopters in the Vietnam War was laid to rest in his hometown Friday after being killed in a February airline crash that claimed 50 lives in upstate New York.
About 50 people attended the burial of 62-year-old Henry Yarber at Dayton National Cemetery. The service featured a 21-gun salute. Yarber's daughter, Pamela Jones, said it took nearly three months for Yarber's remains to be identified - through DNA typing and a titanium knee replacement.
