Supreme Court of Ohio Justice Evelyn L. Stratton (Ret.) will receive the flag of Capt. James Crawford DeLong, U.S. Army, WWI, during The Ohio Missing In America Project mission to bury the remains of 11 forgotten, unclaimed veterans at Dayton National Cemetery on June 30th.
Capt. James Crawford DeLong, U.S. Army, WWI, served from 8/15/1917 to 10/31/1932.
Other than he passed away in Columbus Ohio, we don’t know anything else about him. His remains have been setting on a shelf at Greenlawn Cemetery for 45 years.
