70 years later, a TN soldier returns home.
Army Pfc. Cecil E. Harris’ platoon came under attack on Jan. 2, 1945 during WW2—and once the smoke cleared—his fellow soldiers noticed he was missing.
Last year, four French men stumbled upon what turned out to be Harris’ remains while hiking near the German border.
Harris’ funeral service took place on Friday in Chattanooga & he will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery on October 22.
Welcome home, soldier.
