Ex-CIA chief Petraeus aided foreign-born WWII hero's Arlington burial request after rejection

A request by a Swiss-born World War II hero spy to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery received a boost from CIA Director David Petraeus (peh-TRAY'-uhs) months before he resigned amid a sex scandal.

A Petraeus letter to Army officials, provided to The Associated Press, reveals that the retired four-star general took an interest in the case of Dr. Rene Joyeuse (rehn-AY' zhoy-ERHZ'), a retired doctor from upstate New York who died in June.

Joyeuse's Arlington burial was initially rejected because he wasn't a member of the U.S. military. The family received support from U.S. military and intelligence officials, and the decision was reversed on the same November day that Petraeus resigned.

Joyeuse's memorial service at Arlington is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
