California soldier killed in Vietnam to be buried at Arlington
A soldier from Southern California killed in the Vietnam war will be buried Thursday in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
The remains of Army Sgt. 1st Class William Brown from La Habra were only recently recovered and identified along with those of two other soldiers killed in the same enemy ambush near the border of Vietnam and Laos on Nov. 3, 1969.
The three were part of a Special Forces patrol. Brown's military identification tag was recovered in 2008 and other remains were recovered in 2010, officials said.
The three soldiers will be buried in a single grave.
