More than 500 people in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have witnessed the burial of the remains of a soldier who died in a prisoner camp in 1951 during the Korean War.
The Daily Mining Gazette says Amy Pfc. Arthur Leiviska was buried Monday, Memorial Day, at Lakeview Cemetery in Calumet, his hometown in far northwestern Michigan. The identity of his remains was not made until 2010.
Leiviska was 18 when he was reported missing in action in 1951. His remains and the remains of other soldiers were turned over to United Nations forces in 1954, but it took decades and DNA from relatives to confirm his identity.
