 As a longtime supporter of our nation’s veterans, Senator Crapo will join the Missing in America Project (MIAP) and Twin Falls County Commissioners to honor three recovered veterans, as well as one spouse, at the Snake River National Cemetery for Final Military Honors and Interment.  The four individuals passed away in other parts of the United States and were recently identified and returned to Idaho.  The celebration of life will honor the life and sacrifices of:

  • Richard J. Zebert, former U.S. Marine and Purple Heart recipient who fought in the Vietnam War;
  • Richard. E. Wagner, U.S. Army veteran who also fought in Vietnam;
  • Thomas W. Mitchell, Jr., U.S. Army veteran who fought in Vietnam; and
  • Ruth H. Sipes Wall, Wife of World War II and Korean War veteran William F. Wall.

“It is a pleasure to work with Idahoans on these ‘Missing In America Project’ missions,” said Coleen Florke, Idaho State Coordinator, Missing in Action Project.  “The collaboration and support from our local officials here in Twin Falls, Funeral Homes, Veteran’s groups, Veterans, and so many people in the community has been inspiring.  We look forward to having Senator Crapo join us on Friday.  We will stand in for the families of three Vietnam veterans and one spouse whose husband served in World War II and the Korean War, whose cremains have remained unclaimed. This service is to remind us and them, ‘You Are Not Forgotten.’”

The Missing in America Project is a non-profit dedicated to locating, identifying and interring unclaimed remains of American veterans and eligible family members.  This is the second ceremony for MIAP at the Snake River Canyon Cemetery.
