Homecoming Ceremony for Krogman
Hundreds of family members, high school friends and Worland, Wyoming, community members turned out for a homecoming ceremony for 1Lt Alva R. Krogman '64 today (July 21).
Krogman was killed in action on 17 Jan 1967 after being shot down over Vietnam. Krogman's remains were identified in 2020 and he was repatriated this week to his hometown and buried next to his parents.
A community funeral service was held at the Worland Middle School, then there was a long procession to Riverview Memorial Gardens Cemetery. A full military ceremony, complete with flyover, was held at the gravesite.
