PFC Roosevelt Clark, Home From Korea

| February 27, 2013

Another missing soldier has come home from the Korean War.

PFC Roosevelt Clark, formerly of Arvin, CA, was assigned to Company E, 35th Infanty Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, US Army.  He was lost in action near Unsan, North Korean, on November 28, 1950.  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.

Over 7,900 US personnel remain unaccounted for from the Korean War.  If you are relative of one of the individuals listed here, please consider reading this link to see if you qualify to submit a mtDNA sample – and if you do qualify, please do so.  By doing so, you may be able to help identify US remains that have been repatriated but not yet positively identified.

Everybody deserves a proper burial.  That’s especially true for those who gave their all in the service of this nation.

    Thank you for posting on this. I remember a Vietnamese wondering aloud, “You come back for the bones of your dead.”

    Well, yes. We honor the service, and the sacrifice, of the individual. We respect the grief of the family. And we hold our government accountable for the lives of our people. Every last one, even if it takes many decades. That is the only proper response of a free people, when they ask the ultimate sacrifice from their citizens.
