Pearl Harbor Victim Returns to Arkansas

The remains of US Navy Seaman First Class Glenn Tipton were returned to his native northeast Arkansas Wednesday evening.  An Arkansas Air National Guard C-130 carried Tipton’s body from Memphis to Walnut Ridge Regional Airport, and the flag-draped coffin was carried from the plane by a military honor guard.  Photos attached, courtesy of Wings of Honor World War II Museum in Walnut Ridge:
