Arlington burial for Saranac Lake veteran



It was the same day Petraeus resigned as director of CIA.

On Thursday, Rabideau and O’Donnell were en route to Arlington to witness, today, the final military honors given to a man whose life was the stuff of legend.

“He was the neighbor next door that nobody knows about,” O’Donnell mused.

“Rene Joyeuse represents something bigger. He represents this generation that’s in its twilight. That’s why this inturnment is so important.”

“We’re finally putting him somewhere he belongs,” Marc Joyeuse, the veteran’s oldest son told the AP. 

Being a soldier, that’s where he wanted to be.”
