MADISONVILLE, KY (WFIE) - A World War II veteran in Kentucky finally got the footstone he deserves on Sunday, 44 years later.
Barbara Noel-Wood finally got to see her widow's footstone placed at his grave.
Bill Wood, a Navy veteran of WWII, was issued a personalized footstone from the U.S. Government, but Barbara never received it.
On Sunday, at a special ceremony at Odd Fellows Cemetery in Madisonville, she was able to see it for herself thanks to a couple of good samaritans who found the stone while out hunting.
The Hopkins County Genealogical Society housed the footstone until they determined who it belonged to.
