A homeless Vietnam War Veteran who died in Brenham will be buried at Prairie Lea Cemetery next week.
Luther Walter Martin Jr. died from cancer Friday in Brenham, where he had been living for the past month. Martin served his country in Vietnam War, and was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army. He later suffered from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The Washington County Veterans Association is asking for donations to help with the expenses of his burial. Prairie Lea Cemetery has donated a gravesite for Martin.
Anyone interested in making a donation toward Martin’s burial expenses can make their check out to Washington County Veterans Association. Checks may be dropped off at Memorial Oaks Chapel at 1306 West Main Street in Brenham. Memorial Oaks Chapel is in charge of the arrangements, and will announce the date and time of Martin’s funeral at a later date.
