ND funeral set for pilot killed in Vietnam War
FARGO (AP) -- A Saturday funeral is planned in Fargo for a Vietnam War pilot who was missing in action for more than four decades.
The remains of Air Force Maj. Tom Beyer are being flown into Fargo on Wednesday night. The National Guard says the funeral is Saturday afternoon at St. Mary's Cathedral, followed by a burial at Holy Cross Cemetery.
Beyer went missing in Vietnam in 1968. He was declared dead 10 years later, but his remains were not found and identified until this year.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple and state Guard commander David Sprynczynatyk (sprin-suh-NAT'-ik) are expected to speak at the funeral.
