Memorial service set for SWAR Vietnam soldier

GUERNSEY, AR (KSLA) - A memorial service for Sgt. James Holt is set for this coming weekend.

Holt was a Vietnam soldier who was listed as Missing In Action (MIA) for 47 years until last week when his remains were identified.

The remains were found in the northern part of South Vietnam where Sgt. Holt was stationed.

Services for Sgt. Holt will be on Saturday, February 7 at 11:00 a.m. in the Washington, Arkansas gymnasium.

The Texarkana chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America say they picked that day because it will be the 47 year anniversary of Sgt. Holt's death.

The memorial service is open to the public.
