A Marine Corps veteran who served during World War II and died at age 101 with no known family is expected to be buried in Wyoming.

Cpl. Remigio “Ray” Barela is scheduled to be buried at the Oregon Trail Veterans Cemetery in Casper at 10 a.m. Friday, The Casper Star-Tribune reported.

Joey Casada, the manager of Bustards Funeral Home, said he did not know details of Barela’s record or how he came to Casper.

Barela told friends he had outlived "everybody," Casada said.

"No family has come forth in the last two weeks," said Casada, whose funeral home is handling the arrangements.

“Hardness," I was learning, was the supreme virtue among Infantry Marines. The greatest compliment one could pay to another was to say he was hard. Hardness wasn't toughness, nor was it courage, although both were part of it. Hardness was the ability to face an overwhelming situation with aplomb, smile calmly at it, and then triumph through sheer professional pride.” ― Nathaniel Fick
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES!!!
