73 years later, a fallen American commando comes home

More than seven decades after he was killed in action in the Pacific, a World War II Raider has come home.

Marine Corps Sgt. John C. Holladay was buried with military honors Monday at the National Cemetery in Florence, South Carolina, after his remains were identified and repatriated from the Solomon Islands.

His return means his family’s 70-year grieving process is over, his nephew Jack Holladay said.
