LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Korean war veteran whose remains were
identified by the military nearly 60 years after his disappearance is being laid to rest in his native Kentucky.
Army Cpl. Lloyd Dale Stidham went missing in action in 1950. Now, two of his half brothers who never met him say they're thankful that Stidham's remains are coming home.
The Pentagon confirmed the remains of Stidham along with three other American soldiers on April 3. The remains arrived in Lexington by plane Saturday night.
Members of his family will attend a funeral in Lexington on Monday. Stidham will be buried with full military honors at Camp Nelson National Cemetery.
Stidham's half brother, Donald Stidham, says Lloyd's father and stepmother died without ever knowing what happened to him.
