Funeral arrangements were announced Thursday for a Medal of Honor recipient from Gadsden.
Retired US Army Colonel Ola Lee Mize passed away Wednesday at the age of 82. He was a key figure in the defense of "Outpost Harry" when it was attacked during the Korean War. He was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1954 by President Dwight Eisenhower.
Colonel Mize's funeral will be conducted with full military honors by the Army's 5th Special Forces Group, deployed from Fort Campbell KY, complete with 21-gun salute. An Alabama National Guard unit will be responsible for the flag Honor Guard.
The Gadsden-Etowah Patriots Association said visitation will be held at Southside Baptist Church in Southside AL from 6-8 p.m. Friday. The funeral will be held Saturday at the church at 10 a.m., followed by a funeral procession to Crestwood Cemetery in Gadsden.
