Remains of ND Korean War soldier found

More than a half-century after Pvt. Joseph Meyer Jr. disappeared while fighting in the Korean War, the Army has told his family his remains will be coming home.

Meyer was 17 when he left Wahpeton to enlist in the Army. He was declared missing in action in 1950, with few clues offered to his family.

About 10 years ago, two of his sisters submitted DNA samples to the Army.

"I didn't think it would do any good," said one of the sisters, Alice Pausch. "At that point, I had lost hope already."

Pausch, 79, and her husband received a phone message at their farm home southwest of Wahpeton last week saying the Army had information for them. They learned Meyer's remains were found with no identification in a mass grave in North Korea.

Ahhh....one of my big mysteries solved after all of these years.


On a somewhat similar note, I am shocked at the numbers of Republicans who are perfectly fine with murdering those who are different. I single out Republicans because it seems to be a defining characteristic of Republicans.

As for me, I consider murder to be a significant sin.


The Korean War was a war between the US and China fought on Korean soil.
