7/20/04-charles osgood-Wilma and Guy Crody are the parents of a Vietnam vet whose remains were recently found and who will be buried at Arlington Cemetery next week. They are in front of their home for the past 10 years, not where there son grew up.   Their son, Kenneth Lloyd Crody, was an 18-year-old Marine corporal from Griffith, Ind., when the helicopter he was in was shot down south of demilitarized zone in Vietnam on July 11, 1972. For the next 32 years Kenneth was among the thousands of soldiers who fought in Vietnam listed as missing in action. Then in April, the Department of Defense identified recovered remains as those of Crody and a fellow soldier, Jerry W. Hendrix. Kenneth's parents, Guy and Wilma Crody, who now live downstate Linton, Ind., will be in Arlington National Cemetery on July 27 to finally bury their son. This is a story about sacrifice and the long-term impact of war to a family.  Crody's burial brings up the pain of a decades-old war just as the community is coming to terms with the visceral loss of two young men in Iraq. ..OUTSIDE TRIBUNE CO.- NO MAGS,  NO SALES, NO INTERNET, NO TV..
