Indiana Soldier Identified Among Korean War Remains

WASHINGTON -- Human remains turned over to the U.S. by North Korea this summer include those of a soldier from southern Indiana.     

President Trump announced that the remains of two U.S. Army soldiers missing in the Korean War have been identified from the 55 boxes turned over by North Korea.

They include those of Master Sgt. Charles McDaniel of Jennings County, Indiana.    He was a medic who went missing during a battle with Chinese forces in 1950.   

Among the boxes, researchers also recovered a dog tag that belonged to McDaniel.    The tag was presented to McDaniel's two sons last month.
