Soldier Missing in Action from Korean War Identified

            The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office announced  today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, missing in action from the Korean  War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with  full military honors.

Army Pfc. Richard E. Clapp, 19, of Seattle, Wash., will be buried  April 25, at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C.

On Sept. 2, 1950, Clapp and the C Company, 1st Battalion, 27th  Infantry Regiment came under fire near Yulchon, South Korea, and Clapp was killed in action.  The Army was unable to identify his remains at the time, and  the remains were buried as “Unknown” in a military cemetery on the Korean  Peninsula.

In 1951, the U.S. consolidated cemeteries on the peninsula.  The  unknown remains were interred in the National Memorial Cemetery of the  Pacific.

In 2011, due to advances in identification technology, the  remains were exhumed for identification.  Scientists from the Joint POW/MIA  Accounting Command and the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory used  circumstantial evidence and forensic identification tools such as radiograph  comparison, and dental records to identify Clapp.

Today, more than 7,900 Americans remain unaccounted-for from the  Korean War.  Identifications continue to be made from the remains that were  returned to the United States, using forensic and DNA technology.
