The Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen will conduct an unaccompanied burial at 11 a.m. Tuesday for U.S. Army veteran Mary Lynne Werner. She served in the Army from 1978 to 1985. No family members are expected to be at the funeral on Werner’s behalf.
Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery staff have arranged with the Fort Hood Casualty Office to give Werner full military honors. If no next-of-kin attend the funeral, the Veterans Land Board will accept the United States flag on Werner’s behalf.
The Texas Veterans Land Board works with the community and with fellow veterans service organizations to make sure no veteran is left behind after they die. Members of the Central Texas community are encouraged to attend.
The Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery is at 11463 State Highway 195 in Killeen.
