Army Lt. Col. Don C. Faith Jr. of Washington, Ind. will be buried on April 17.
He was a veteran of World War II and went on to serve in the Korean War.


He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for personal acts of exceptional valor during the battle.

In 2004, a joint U.S. and Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (D.P.R.K) team surveyed the area where Faith was last seen.  His remains were located and returned to the U.S. for identification.

The remains were identified through DNA and other circumstantial and forensic evidence
