After World War II, the U.S. Graves Registration Service began contacting the families of those who died overseas, giving them the option of having their soldier buried in a U.S. cemetery overseas or brought home. This is the letter my great-grandparents received from the chief of the Memorial Division. A photo of the cemetery in Guam was enclosed with this letter.
My great-grandparents chose to have my great-uncle's remains brought home to New Jersey to be buried in the Beverly National Cemetery.
