You are asked to attend a veteran’s funeral

Barron County (WQOW) – A veteran’s group is asking the community to come together to give their brother in arms a proper burial.

The Barron County Veteran Service Office said Paul Shockley Jr. died November 4 in Rice Lake.

They said he has no next of kin and officials said he only had a few friends who were still living.

Now, they’re asking the public to come out and give the veteran the final send-off he deserves.

He will be buried at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetary in Spooner on Friday at 1 p.m.

Skinner Funeral Home in Cumberland is providing the services and a military honor guard will be attending.
