Patriot Guard Riders to escort remains of WWII veteran through Duluth and Superior on Friday
UPDATE: A campsite official with Knife Island says anyone who would like to pay their respects to the fallen soldier returning to Ontonagon, Michigan will be allowed to stand near I-35 on their property Friday night.
Knife Island Campground is located just north of Scanlon off of County Road 61.
A World War II veteran who was killed during the attack on the USS Oklahoma in Pearl Harbor is now accounted for and will travel home for a memorial service.
Navy Fireman 2nd Class Lowell E Valley was 19 years old when Japanese aircraft attacked the ship in 1941.
Valley was one of 429 crewmen who died when it capsized due to torpedo hits.
On Friday, Valley will return home for a memorial service, and will be escorted by the Minnesota Patriot Guard Riders.
Valley's remains will be received by the Patriot Guard at the Minneapolis Airport, and will then be accompanied to Superior, where Wisconsin officials will take over the escort at the Best Western Bridgeview Hotel at 415 Hammond Avenue.
Officials expect to arrive in Superior at 8 p.m.
The escort will travel from Superior to Ashland, Wisconsin, where officials from Michigan will take over the escort at the Kwik Trip located at 1805 Main Street West.
The escort will then travel to Ontonagon, Michigan, where Valley's family will invite the Guard to stand a flag line in honor of his life and service.
CBS 3 Duluth will be at the transfer in Superior, and will have the latest on the news at 10.
