The Commander of the VFW Conshohocken Post 1074, Walt Hartnett, was interviewed yesterday by NBC10 on the post’s effort to secure a uniform for Samuel Jackson of Norristown, who recently died in a hit-and-run accident. It was Jackson’s wish to be buried in his Marine uniform, but it could not be located. He served in the Vietnam War.
Through the post’s public outreach, Richard Dunn of Conshohocken gave his uniform to Jackson’s family. Note they are still trying to find the proper belt and hat.

There was also an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer about it.
