Karl Roy Bieser's brother Harold
Huee Bieser was a Sergeant in the US Army at the same time as
SGT Harold Huee Bieser escorted the body of his brother home. Huee wrote:
" When I escorted Karl's casket from San Francisco, CA., in 1968 I promised to name my first born after him."
That first born was a son who
was born on August 24, 1985, and his name is Karl Audy Bieser.
On the VVMF website, Karl Audy wrote the folowing tribute to his Uncle Karl Roy:
" I never met you but it doesn't mean I can't miss you. I love you and rest in peace."
Karl Roy Bieser is buried in the
Santa Fe National Cemetery, Santa Fe, New Mexico,
