Memorial service in honour of Sikh-American soldier held


Washington, July 30

Recognising the valour of Sikh American Gurpreet Singh who died in a combat mission in Afghanistan over a decade ago, the Arlington National Cemetery held a service in his honour more than six months after he was memorialised at America’s most hallowed ground with the placement of a memorial headstone.

The service was held at the memorial marker of Corporal Gurpreet, the first Sikh service member from the Afghanistan campaign to be memorialised at the Arlington cemetery. — PTI
