VERBENA, Ala. (AP) -- A funeral has been scheduled for a soldier who was reported missing in action more than 60 years ago in North Korea.
The body of Army Master Sgt. Olen Berry Williams was returned to his relatives in Alabama earlier this week and was scheduled to be buried Sunday at a cemetery in Verbena -- about 30 miles north of Montgomery.
Williams was declared missing in action in December 1960 and his unidentified remains were interred at a national military cemetery in Hawaii. His relatives used forensic identification tools and biographical information to identify him.
Williams' relatives planned to bury him next to his parents and younger sister.
