Korean War veteran's remains identified, reburied at family plot

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio - TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The remains of a Marine from northwestern Ohio are being reburied in his home state more than six decades after he was killed in North Korea and buried with hundreds of unidentified Korean War veterans.

Twenty-three-year-old Cpl. Harold W. Reed died in an artillery shell blast Nov. 29, 1950, two days before his birthday.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo
reports the Saturday burial fulfills a wish for his late mother who wanted him to be laid to rest near her. She even bought a burial plot for herself and her children.

Reed's brother-in-law says he vowed to bring Reed's remains home and calls it a blessing to see that happen.

The newspaper says a chest X-ray helped officials identify the remains.
