BAY SHORE - A Bay Shore veteran was buried at Calverton National Cemetery with full military honors today.

Harry Grayson, an Army corporal in the 1950s during the Korean War, recently passed away at a Bay Shore nursing home, but with no surviving family members, his remains went unclaimed. 

When county officials were informed that Grayson was a military veteran, they say they contacted the Dignity Memorial Veterans Burial Organization, a national network of funeral home directors who ensure veterans receive honors in death merited by their service in life.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy (R-Suffolk) says it's important the county's veterans be recognized for their sacrifices.
