Monday marks a special occasion for Military City USA. A U.S. Navy fireman killed during the Pearl Harbor attack will finally be laid to rest more than 80 years after his death. Frank E. Nicoles, 24, will have full military honors at his funeral at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery. He was from Wisconsin. Nicoles' remains were not identified until May 2016. Researchers used dental analysis and DNA samples from his relatives to confirm it was him. Nicoles, who was nicknamed "Junie" for junior, had three other siblings who served in the military during World War II. Nicoles' funeral is set for Monday at 2:30 p.m. at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.
