BOULDER CITY, Nev. The remains of 17 U.S. military service members who went unclaimed by relatives after their deaths in the Las Vegas area since 1992 have been laid to rest with an honor guard salute in Boulder City.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that a Tuesday ceremony sponsored by Women Veterans of Nevada at the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery follows two similar salutes in 2018 for the unclaimed remains of 47 veterans.

Retired Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Bobi Oates tells the newspaper the deaths of 248 veterans have been similarly commemorated since 2009 in northern Nevada.

Officials say the veterans had returned home alive following World Wars I and II, the Cold War, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Their bodies were stored in area funeral homes.
