ALBERT LEA, Minn. – The body of a WWII veteran was recently discovered in Germany and is now coming home. The Patriot Guard Riders, an organization who make it their mission to honor military heroes, is making sure Lawrence Gordon is properly escorted back to his hometown in Canada.
“My uncle had been a cowboy, and he was great with horses,” says nephew Lawrence Gordon. “ We had a team with a wagon, that the casket was put on, and they took him from the funeral home to the VFW where he was loaded into the van.”
Gordon has many memories of his uncle, but when he went missing during WWII, there were many questions about what had happened to him.
