William T. Carneal, World War II infantryman killed in Pacific, buried in Paducah

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 3:27 PM EDT

The remains of a U.S. Army infantryman killed in World War II have been laid to rest in Paducah.

The Paducah Sun reports that descendants of Pvt. First Class William T. Carneal were joined Friday at his funeral by family friends, members of the Patriot Guard Riders, county officials and members of the Japanese non-governmental organization Kuentai.

Carneal entered the Army in October 1941. He served in the 105th Infantry Regiment, 27th Infantry Division.

After a battle on the Pacific island of Saipan in July 1944, Carneal was reported missing in action. A year later, he was declared dead at age 24.

The Kuentai group found Carneal's remains, along with those of four other American soldiers, during a March 2013 excavation.

Carneal would have turned 94 on Friday.
