    Remains of 4 Korean War vets identified

    I waited for a bit before I chose to post this article. I hope that I didn't miss a thread already started.

    I wanted to share this because these families have been waiting for decades for word of their loved ones. And as an Army wife I feel for them, as I'm sure many others do too.

    The military has identified the remains of four Army soldiers considered missing in action in North Korea nearly 60 years ago.

    The Defense Department released the names of three servicemen Friday: Cpl. Lloyd D. Stidham, of Beattyville, Ky.; Cpl. Samuel C. Harris Jr., of Rogersville, Tenn; and Cpl. Robert G. Schoening, of Blaine, Wash. The name of a fourth soldier is being withheld until his family is briefed, according to a statement from the Department of Defense.

    This means there are only 8,172 still missing. Who knew?

    Thank you PFF, I'm glad to see that the families that have waited decades to finally know where their loved one is and can have them returned home to them.
