Unaccompanied veteran buried

Justin Borja | Herald

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Julie Fuleky, a member of the honors team from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, presents the U.S. flag that covered the coffin of Air Force veteran Joseph Walker to retired Army Command Sgt. Maj. Douglas Gualt during funeral services for Walker at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery on Monday. Gault, the cemetery's Texas Veterans Land Board representative, accepted the flag on behalf of the state because Walker had no friends or family available to attend the funeral.
