A United States soldier killed during the Korean War was finally laid to rest in a burial ceremony on Saturday, after being unidentified for nearly seven decades.
The remains of Army Master Sgt. Charles H. McDaniel were among the 55 others that were retrieved from North Korea in July.
Fox 59 reported that the Army declared Sgt. McDaniel deceased as of Dec. 31, 1953.
He went missing in 1950, according to The Indianapolis Star, during the Battle of Unsan.
As Fox News reported, President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un negotiated the transfer of the remains during their historic summit in June.
The 55 cases with what are believed to be the remains of U.S. soldiers landed in Honolulu, Hawaii on Aug. 1.
McDaniel’s son, Charles McDaniel Jr., said that the finding of his father’s remains was “surreal.”
“We never expected it, anticipated it in any way,” he told the Star.
