Posted: Updated:

Today friends and family honored a fallen hero and a Northern Michigan native.

John Burgess' family and friends gathered at Kingsley High School today, and got the closure they have been looking for years.

Burgess' remains were found along with two others in Vietnam. He has been missing in action for more than 40 years.

A formal ceremony already took place at Arlington where he was given the highest honors at his burial. Soil was brought from the Arlington site, to go by Burgess' headstone in Kingsley.
