W.Va. Agency Looking for Help in Finding Soldiers Grave


The West Virginia Division of Highways is asking the public for help in finding the grave of a soldier who served in three wars.

Highways crews found William H. Moore’s headstone in a ditch in Summers County about two years ago. The DOH’s Summers County headquarters has been trying since then to find Moore’s grave or his family.

DOH assistant supervisor Greg Bridges tells WVNS-TV that Moore died in 1969 and was a veteran of World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Bridges says he believes someone removed the headstone from Moore’s grave and then tossed it away.

Anyone who has information can contact the Summers County DOH headquarters at 304-466-2802.
