A World War II soldier has been laid to rest in Nashville nearly 75 years after his death.
A service was held Tuesday morning for U.S. Army Staff Sergeant William Turner, of Nashville.
The aerial engineer was part of the "Hell's Fury" crew, an armada of B-26 bombers flying from Essex, England to Amsterdam, when they were shot down on December 13, 1943.
Turner was 20-years-old at the time.
