A swab of saliva is helping bring home the only veteran who never returned to Oceano after World War II.
The remains of Pfc. George Bernard Murray are set to be brought back to San Luis Obispo County on Wednesday, with a full military funeral to follow Friday morning at Arroyo Grande Cemetery.
Veterans groups from across the state, and throngs of residents are expected to line the streets along Grand Avenue in Grover Beach and Highway 1 into Oceano as a funeral procession makes it way to the cemetery.
Welcome home Sir!
