Body of Tabor War Casualty Arriving Home for Burial
TABOR- Funeral services and honorary military rites are planned for the first World War II casualty of this area to be brought home for burial. The body of Sgt. Wenceslaus Bares, son of Anton Bares, Tabor, will arrive in Yankton Thursday via train after a long journey from Germany where he died of wounds on December 9, 1944. Members of Kortan-Hatwan Post of the American Legion will meet the train and form a full-dress military escort from Yankton to Tabor where the body will be laid to rest. Legionaires will form the firing squad, color guard and color bearers. Funeral rites will be at 9:30 Saturday morning from the Legion hall to St. Wenceslaus Catholic church, and the Rev. Fr. Raymond Koman will officiate. The remains will lie in state at the Legion hall from Thursday to Saturday. Sgt. Bares was born in Tabor on April 3, 1918, and he enlisted in the regular army for three years, 1937 to 1940. He re-enlisted on May 16, 1942 and entered service with the tank corps, sailing December 4, 1943, for the European Theatre of War where he was attached to the First Amy. Plans for the military rites were announced today of L.E. Kostel, commander of Kortan-Hatwan Post. Source: Yankton Daily News and Dakotan, February 4, 1945. Contributed by M.L. Ihrke
