Veteran’s Ashes Sent To Wrong Address

ALPINE, Calif., Feb. 6 (UPI) — A California woman who mailed her father’s ashes and U.S. Army dog tags to her brother in Washington state said the package ended up at the wrong address.

Carole Irwin of Alpine said she was told the package fell off a mail truck and was repacked, but a mix-up resulted in it being labeled with the wrong address and ending up at a Seattle home, KSWB-TV, San Diego, reported Monday.

The Seattle woman who received the package used the dog tags to trace the package back to Irwin.

Irwin said the mistake makes sense given that her father, a Vietnam veteran, was always on the lookout for adventure.

“I was just like ‘well I guess he wanted to see Seattle,'” Irwin said. “I’m just so fortunate that it got into the right hands.”
