Veterans Buried Without Military Honors or Families at Their Gravesides DALLAS (May 12, 2020) — The daughter of a WWII veteran is urging the government to relax coronavirus restrictions on military funerals, which means no taps, no honor guard, and no loved ones at the graveside. “What we’ll miss is we don’t get to pay an honor to him in the fashion he deserves,” Lisa Hulse of Arlington said. Hulse’s father, Richard Runnels, entered the U.S. Army in 1943, a year after he graduated high school. He was among the first soldiers in France after D-Day. Scott Gordon has the details.
