Central Illinois soldier's body finally returning home


This Saturday, the body of a central Illinois soldier, who died in combat 46-years ago, is making its way home.

Captain Joseph S. Smith served in the Air Force during the Vietnam War.

As a way to honor him, the Seitz Funeral Home and Assumption police ask the community to join them in a motorcade.

Everyone will meet at first Baptist church Moweaqua parking lot and head towards the funeral home in Assumption. A funeral mass will be held Monday at St. Mary's Catholic Church.
