Soldier killed in 1942 to be buried in Beloit

(WKOW) — A World War II soldier will finally be buried back home in Beloit tomorrow.

The remains of Sgt. Robert McCarville flew into Milwaukee last night and a procession guided them to a funeral home.

The state captain of the Patriot Guard Riders says the procession for McCarville was well deserved after everything he did to protect our freedom.

“He signed the same dotted line as somebody in the recruiting center today. Signed the line, raised his hand and swore to protect this country and the constitution and the people that it stands for,” said John Curran. He deserves our respect and our honor. He’s going to be buried with respect and honor.”

McCarville was killed in action in 1942 when he was 24 years old.

He’ll be buried tomorrow next to his parents.
