Another missing soldier has come home from the Korean War.

PFC Clark’s remains were among those in 208 boxes of remains repatriated by North Korea between 1991 and 1994. Modern technology allowed the positive identification of PFC Clark’s remains. His remains were returned to his family today for burial. Funeral information is not currently available.
Rest now in peace, my elder brother-in-arms.
