SALUTING THE BRAVE: Remains Of Korean War Soldier Missing For 62 Years Being Returned To Sister

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The remains of a Korean War soldier who was reported missing 62 years ago are being returned to his sister in western Montana.
    
Cpl. Luther Jesse James was reporting missing in action in December 1950 and later confirmed dead, but his remains were just recently identified and are being returned to his sister, Lucille Walker, in Victor.
    
The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/Pc48XO) a full military burial is planned for Saturday.
    
James' remains were among the remains of up to 400 service members North Korea turned over to the United States between 1991 and 1994. The Department of Defense has used DNA testing to identify the remains.
    
Walker, now 80, was 16 when she last saw her brother in 1948. They lived in Oklahoma at the time.
