M SGT Samuel Mazur was a veteran who served as an Army Air Corpsman during World War II, and in the Air Force during the Korean War. During World War II he was a tail gunner in a B-17 bomber on the European front. A career military man, he was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross, the American Theater Ribbon, the World War II Victory Medal and the Air Medal. His hometown was Tunbridge. A world traveler during his military career, he spent his retirement years in Vermont, his home state, in a small home decorated with furniture he had made himself while in Hong Kong. He died of cancer in a Veterans Administration hospital with no family present. His cremains had laid unclaimed, "abandoned property," at the Knight Funeral Home in White River Junction since his death. Through the efforts of the Missing in America Project his ashes were located and claimed by the MIAP, with full cooperation by the funeral home. Samuel Mazur, along with the cremains of three other unclaimed veterans found at the same location, was interred with military honors on Friday, November 7, 2008.
