GREENVILLE – Tribute’s Eric Fee has received word the flight DL3108 returning WWII Coxswain Alexander remains to Dayton International has been delayed 52 minutes. The procession through Downtown Greenville is expected to arrive around noon.

Coxswain Alexander was listed as Missing in Action after his ship, the USS Glennon struck a mine in the English Channel on June 8, 1944. Through the unending efforts of THE DEFENSE POW/MIA ACCOUNTING AGENCY and the miracle of DNA science, the family is finally able to bring their beloved uncle home to rest alongside his family.

A coordinated Friday procession with the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Darke County Sheriff’s Department, and the Greenville Police Department will leave Dayton International Airport to I-70 West exiting on SR 49 North into Greenville continuing on Sweitzer Street, turning right at Pine Street (Teafords), left on Washington Avenue, left on Broadway at the Annie Oakley Statue, around the traffic circle, and out North Broadway to Tribute Funeral Home. An anticipated 2 pm arrival time in Greenville is expected.

To honor our WWII Fallen Hero, people are invited to line State Route 49 and Greenville city streets with American Flags.
