Long before donating his body to science, WWII vet lived in service to others: ‘a true patriot’ – The Advocate11.13.21

When the call came, David Saunders served. Over and over again, without question.

He turned 19 two days before the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Nearly eight decades later, he vividly remembered that day, which changed the course of American history and the course of his young life.

"I know exactly where I was,"he said in a 2019 taped interview at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans."I was dove-hunting with a 12-gauge shotgun."

When he learned about the attack after the hunting trip, he was incredulous.

"There goes my membership to the dove-hunting club," he recalled telling his buddies.

Saunders spent years serving his country during World War II and the Korean War, first in the Merchant Marine and later in the Army. He returned with a deep sense of patriotism that never subsided.

When he died from COVID in August, Saunders made one last sacrifice for his country, donating his body to science.

When Elsie Saunders signed a contract affirming her late husband wanted his body donated to science after his August death from COVID-19, she

But Elsie Saunders was horrified to learn last week that her late husband had actually been dissected before a paying audience in Oregon, even after she signed a contract that heavily implied a different outcome. The public spectacle betrayed his dying wishes and dishonored his memory, family members said.

And the discovery came just days before Veterans Day, making it even harder to swallow.

"This man was a true patriot, a true hero," said his great-nephew Hal Adkins. "To honor him and all the others, that's what I want to make sure we all do not just on Nov. 11, but every day."

After the recent gruesome events prompted national headlines about his death, relatives want to focus on how David Saunders lived.

A recent photo of David Saunders and his wife, Elsie Saunders.

He was born Dec. 5, 1922 and spent his early childhood on Magazine Street in New Orleans, then moved to Bogalusa with his family when his father became ill. His dad died years later, and Saunders ultimately dropped out of high school to help support the family.

He was newly married when he joined the Merchant Marine and boarded the SS Mayo Brothers in New Orleans, carrying some clothes and a Bible.

"I wouldn't have missed it," he said in the 2019 interview. "I was young, full of pee and vinegar."

David Saunders poses for a photograph in 1941, not long before he joined the Merchant Marine during World War II.

Though merchant mariners are often overlooked in historical accounts, the force suffered a higher rate of fatalities than other branches of the American military during WWII. Their mission was to deliver personnel, supplies and equipment overseas, but the voyages left them vulnerable to attacks, often from German submarines.

Not long after the SS Mayo Brothers embarked on its voyage, Saunders witnessed an attack on another American ship, which exploded and sank, he recalled in the interview. His captain had been worried about submarines hiding in murky waters where the Mississippi River flows into the Gulf, but Saunders never figured out what, exactly, was behind the attack.

After traversing the Gulf, the crew passed through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific Ocean to Australia.

During a stop in India, Saunders unwittingly followed some older mariners to a brothel, but upon realizing the mistake, he turned around and walked back to the ship alone, his family said. Instead of engaging in debauchery that night, he got a tattoo: his wife's name inked across his forearm.

His ship later stopped in Egypt, where Saunders contracted a severe case of dysentery from something he ate.

He got so sick that he needed medical treatment, so the crew arranged for his admittance to a British hospital. Saunders said he would never forget how another mariner carried him down the gangplank to shore because he was too weak to walk.

Twice daily we'll send you the day's biggest headlines. Sign up today.

For seven weeks in the hospital, he largely subsisted off goat milk. Then he boarded another American ship, but the illness persisted. Ultimately, he was sent back home for more treatment. But before he arrived at a New Orleans hospital, Saunders recalled seeing penguins off the coast of South America and visiting a doctor in Trinidad.

After a decorated Louisiana World War II veteran died from COVID-19 in August, his widow tried to carry out his wishes by donating his body to

Saunders was discharged from the Merchant Marine and drafted into the Army soon thereafter, even though his health was still compromised, Elsie Saunders said.

"He didn't question it; he just went," she said. "It was a different time. What's lost nowadays is that patriotic attitude."

David Saunders was stationed at Army bases in Arkansas and Wyoming, completing training while still suffering from the lingering pain of his illness. He was later sent to the Pacific, where he worked as a railway electrician and helped transport Japanese prisoners of war near Manila.

Saunders saw his first combat in the Philippines, receiving minor injuries while some of his colleagues were killed.

"It wasn't pleasant," he said in 2019. "I thank God every day that I'm still here at 96 years old."

He recalled being stationed near a lake, where the soldiers would trade cigarettes for fish. He said they would coat the fish in clay, bury them underground and light a fire in the trenches. After the fire burned out overnight, the men would wake up to freshly cooked fish.

Saunders and his unit were training for an invasion of Japan when the war ended.

He returned to New Orleans, where he reunited with family and worked various jobs. But his civilian days were numbered: About five years after returning from World War II, he was drafted again, this time to fight in the Korean War.

He arrived in Korea during wintertime, when the weather was so cold that soldiers cut holes in their sleeping bags and wore them as coats because the arrival of their winter gear was delayed, Elsie Saunders said.

After about a year, Army officials realized David Saunders had been drafted in error, his widow recalled. Once again, he returned to New Orleans.

The body of Louisiana World War II veteran David Saunders, which was dissected before a paying audience in Oregon last month, was returned to

He faced some mental health concerns after his final discharge from the military, but "he just took off his uniform, picked up his tools and went to work," his widow said.

He eventually readjusted to civilian life: a devoted husband, hard-working professional and caretaker for his aging mother.

He spent 32 years at the Kaiser Aluminum plant in Chalmette, rising through the ranks to become general foreman.

Decades after returning home, he enjoyed telling lighthearted stories about his service, Elsie Saunders said stories about how the soldiers would steal bacon from the higher-ranking officers, how they drank warm sodas and dreamed of guzzling cold beer instead.

He was married to his first wife until she died in 2011, several years after they moved to Baker following Hurricane Katrina. He later married Elsie, his friend of more than six decades.

In his later years, Saunders almost never left the house without his signature baseball cap, proclaiming his service in World War II and Korea. Whether running errands or attending a family gathering, the cap was part of his look, along with a starched collared shirt and neatly trimmed goatee.

"That infernal hat," his widow said with a chuckle. "He didn't mind anybody knowing he was patriotic."

His decision to donate his body to science came as no surprise, she said. After all, David Saunders was no stranger to sacrifice.

Elsie Saunders laughs while her late husband, David Saunders, poses for a goofy picture.

Mother of missing Irish man in Wyoming continues search to find her son’s remains – Irish Examiner11.02.21

The family of a 27-year-old Dublin man who went missing in Wyoming last June is continuing the search in a bid to return his remains to Ireland.

Cian McLaughlin was hiking in the Grand Teton national park on June 8 when we went missing.

His mother Grainne McLaughlin told RT that her son had been living in the area for the past two years and that he had dual Irish/US citizenship.

Cian was an outgoing guy who loved the outdoors, she said, adding that he worked as a snowboard instructor during the winter and as a barman during the summers.

Her son would always stop and chat to people and was loved by all his friends. He was living his life.

Ms McLauglin said Cian was well versed in the mountains having grown up going on walks with her and other family members, and knew the importance of gear and equipment.

The family believes he was on a day hike and went off-trail and, because of the melting snow, it would have been a tricky time of year.

The family arrived in the area on June 17 and within two days were told that it was a recovery operation.

I went through a huge amount of grief at that time. That was really hard, she said.

This is not a rescue, it is a recovery, but I'd like to bring him home. I know he is up there somewhere.

"I am thinking of Cian at every moment and trying to connect with him and my hope is to bring him home, to have some resolution and bring him home," Ms McLauglin said.

The family has launched a major social media campaign using the hashtag #FindCian.

His uncle, Colm O'Higgins, told RT that they are appealing to the public for information adding that given how sociable and chatty Cian was, the family is certain he would have talked to someone that day who might remember him on the trail.

Our appeal is to anybody who was in the park around June 8 and who may have taken photos," Mr O'Higgins said.

"We are asking them to have a look at their pictures and see if there is somebody in the background. They can share them with us at or the park rangers.

Grand Teton National Park chief ranger Erika Jostad said that the search for Cian would not end until he was found.

At the time he went missing 70 searchers were involved along with search dogs and aircraft and infrared imaging to narrow down the area to search.

The search wont end until we find him, Ms Jodrad said.

Tactics shift over time. We are coming towards winter and we expect the snow to fall. That will make some of the clues we are looking for a little more difficult to find.

The Dublin man is described as being six feet tall, of slim build, with dark brown, collar-length hair, facial hair and brown eyes. He also has a tattoo on his left forearm.

He was last seen wearing round, wire-rimmed sunglasses, a bucket hat, a white short sleeve t-shirt, and shorts. He was not carrying a backpack.

The GoFundMe campaign set up to help the McLaughlin family with the cost of travel, accommodation, and any contingencies, has raised more than 48,000 of its 50,000 goal to date.

Anyone with information who may have seen Mr McLaughlin is asked to contact Teton County at 888-653-000, submit a tip or email:

Gabby Petito supporters get matching Let It Be tattoos in touching tribute after her family get same ink… – The US Sun10.20.21

AFTER Gabby Petitos parents debuted Let it be tattoo tributes to their late daughter, some inspired supporters are getting the same ink.

Getting it done in [sic] just a few.. waiting for my tattoo guy to come [thru], read a post in a forum dedicated to Gabby Petitos memory.



The September 30 photo of the underside of a left wrist included a series of hashtags: #RipGabby, #didnotknowherbutwillalwaysremberher, #JusticeForGabby and then ended with a question:

Why couldnt [Brian] just let her be..

In September, both of Gabbys parents, Nicole Schmidt and Joe Petito showed off their right forearms fit with Let it be tattoos and ocean crest.

They also received a believe tattoo in script brimming over with flowers.

For them, it was a way to keep the 22-year-old Long Island native with them all the time.


The showing of solidarity with Gabby by duplicating the same ink riffing off the Beatles hit song, Let it Be, was convincing others to the same while rankling some.

I love this, reads one response. Ive thought about getting it done too.

Read our Gabby Petito live blog for the very latest news and updates...

Some are Beatles fans but see no harm in getting inked to pay respects to Gabby.

Its actually a really beautiful tattoo, one person offered.

I thought about getting it It would remind me of Gabby, but thats not why I would get it.

Whatever someones reasoning is, its their own.

But the majority of 750 comments met the idea with discord.

Only family or her close friends should be getting tattoos in memory of her, one commenter wrote. Especially her own personal tattoo I get its a song but when you say your getting it for gabby is just odd.

Some scolded the effort as an insult to Gabbys grieving family.

Bro, if I were Gabbys mother and I found out complete strangers were replicating her tattoo to remember her, I would be PISSED! Like hunting your asses down to teach you a lesson about respect."

Seriously stop, wrote the commenter. How do you think her mother & parents would feel, as THATS THEIR WAY OF BEING CONNECTED to her.

The person said the effort was offensive.

Its the last thing they have of her & you wanna go & ruin it by adding yourself to their circle ABSOLUTELY WRONG & DISRESPECTFUL!!

A person who admitted getting the tattoo 10 years ago did so "because I was bullied really bad in school" and struggled with addiction.

The person didn't agree with getting such a tattoo to pay respects to the late young woman.

"But I would never get let it be in memory of gabby... unless I knew her personally," the person confessed.

Gabby was last seen on August 24, 2021, checking out of a hotel with Brian in Salt Lake City, Utah.

When Gabby was first reported missing, photos of her tattoos were being shared as a way to confirm her identity.

Since Gabby's remains were found on September 19 in the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming her distinct tattoos were used to verify the body as Gabbys.

The believe and Let It Be tattoos serve as a somber reminder of Gabbys faith, and the firm belief her parents professed in the early days of the search, that their daughter would come home.

The wave and flower tattoos signify Gabbys appreciation of natural abundance.

Her love of nature was a central tenet of the young vloggers personality, and a pivotal force behind her decision to live the van life that had her trekking across the country to several national parks.

Gabby's father Joe also sported a lefthand tattoo mimicking a set of two vines that wrapped around both her and Brians fingers

According to TattooSEO, vine tattoos represent loyalty and a desire to stick by someones side.

Last year, Brian posted a photo of himself and Gabby, which included the caption Till death do us part or until I wake up, Im so happy the answer was yes.

Fugitive Brian Laundrie Allegedly Forced Gabby Petito To Tell People They Were Engaged, Witnesses Recall ‘Odd’ Encounters – Radar Online10.20.21

While questions about the type of relationship Brian Laundrie and Gabby Petito had continue to raise concerns, witnesses who encountered the pair shortly before she was killed say something was definitely off between the couple.

In fact, two people are now alleging that they believe Brian forced Gabby to either mention their engagement to them or refer to him as her fianc.

Sunny Mason, who works at a Wyoming ice cream shop called Victor Emporium, says she believes the traveling twosome stopped by her store on either Aug. 25 or Aug. 26. Victor Emporium is located just 30 miles from Grand Teton National Park, where the remains of the 22-year-old vlogger were found.

According to The Sun, Mason told a local news outlet that she remembered bonding with Petito over the flower tattoo on her left arm.

She said Petito had told her that she and her partner were on a cross-country road trip to visit different national parks, with Yellowstone being their next stop.

Mason told the outlet Laundrie's behavior during the exchange was "strange."

"It felt to me that he almost prompted her to tell me that she was engaged," she said. "We get a lot of engaged couples and it doesn't usually come up that way."

"It just felt kind of odd," she continued, "like it was a reminder to her to be like 'Ooh look, we're engaged.'"

Mason interpreted Laundrie's reaction to mean he was possibly feeling "slighted for her not talking about her engagement, or her not being excited [about it]."

Another witness has previously reported a similar situation occurring at their store.

The owner of Rustic Row in downtown Victor, Idaho, told that Brian and Gabby also made a pitstop at their shop on either Aug. 25 or Aug. 26.

"They told me they were traveling from Florida," said the owner, who was not named. "They had just been to Teton Park and they said they were interested in going to Yellowstone and I told them they could go to the west entrance."

"They seemed happy," they added, "and when they left, she hollered back from the door that they were engaged and then I said congratulations."

Aug. 25 is the last day there was any activity on Petito's Instagram page. It's also the last time she FaceTimed with her mother.

Aug. 26 is the day before witnesses claim they observed Laundrie being "violent" and "aggressive" toward female wait staff at a Jackson Hole restaurant while Petito stood nearby in tears.

On Aug. 27, Petito's mom, Nichole Schmidt, received an "odd" text from her daughter's cellphone. It read: "Can you help Stan, I just keep getting his voicemails and missed calls."

Stan is the name of Gabby's grandfather, but Nichole said she never called him that.

Petito's death has been ruled a homicide by manual strangulation, and the coroner who performed her autopsy believes she was killed at the end of August.

The manhunt for her 23-year-old wanted fugitive fianc continues.

Gabby Petito case: Father to speak on tonights Banfield – NewsNation Now10.08.21

(NewsNation Now) Gabby Petitos father, Joseph Petito, will speak with NewsNations Ashleigh Banfield Thursday to share his thoughts on the investigation of his daughters death.

You can watch Banfield preview the interview in the player above. You can watch the interview tonight on Banfield at10/9con NewsNation.

Gabby Petito vanished while on a cross-country road trip with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie in a converted camper van. The trip was well-documented on social media until it abruptly ceased, allegedly somewhere in Wyoming. The couple documented most of their trip, which started in July, on a YouTube Vlog calledVAN LIFE. The last posts to both their Instagram accounts were from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

Petito, 22, was reported missing Sept. 11 by her parents after she did not respond to calls and texts for several days. Her body was discovered days later.

The Petito family held a press conference two weeks ago, marking the first time the family had publicly spoken since the 22-year-old YouTubers body was discoveredin Wyoming.

Her mother, father, stepfather and stepmother all displayed matching tattoos they had gotten in honor of Gabby Petito, stating Let It Be. The tattoo was designed by Petito in the way she had it written on her arm.

Joseph Petito thanked the news media and social media for spotlighting his daughters disappearance, but he said all missing persons deserved the same attention.

I want to ask everyone to help all the people that are missing and need help. Its on all of you, everyone thats in this room to do that, he said, pointing to reporters and cameras in front of him. And if you dont do that for other people that are missing, thats a shame, because its not just Gabby that deserves it.

A search is underway for Laundrie, who is a person of interest in the case.

Brian Laundries parents say they last saw him Sept. 13, when they said he took the car to the 24,000-acre Carlton Reserve to go hiking. But, that dateis a change from their original story. Up until Tuesday, they had been saying they last saw Brian Laundrie on Sept. 14.

CASPER, Wyo. The Casper Police Department is asking the public to help identify three people suspected in connection to two recent break-in incidents at Natrona County High School, the department said Wednesday.

The first break-in occurred at around 5 a.m. July 17 and the second occurred at around 2:50 a.m. July 19. Casper PD says the two incidents are thought to be related.

On both occasions, two individuals entered the school and pried open multiple doors, causing significant damage to the building, Casper PD says. On the second occasion, the individuals stole an iPad and $200 in cash. Detectives believe more items that have yet to be identified were stolen as well. Surveillance footage from inside the schools captured the individuals on both occasions. At this time, detectives believe there to be three involved individuals.

The first suspect is believed to be involved in both break-ins. This individual is a white male with a large tattoo on his right forearm that extends toward his bicep: He appears to have a short mustache and chin goatee around one inch long, Casper PD adds. It also appears that he walks pigeon-toed.

The second suspect is believed to have been involved in the July 17 break-in. Casper PD says the person is thought to be a Hispanic or Native American male with droopy eyes.

The third suspect is believed to have been involved in the July 19 break-in and is believed to be a white male or female with eyeglasses, Casper PD says.
