Ceremonial Burial Set For McAllen Native, Korean War Vet Killed In Action 70 Years Ago

0

An Army soldier from McAllen, killed in the Korean War more than 70 years ago, will finally receive a military burial in the United States.

Major Harvey Storms, at age 34, was shot in a firefight in North Korea December 1st 1950, but his remains couldn’t immediately be recovered. However, following the first summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, North Korea in July 2018 turned over 55 boxes believed to contain the remains of unaccounted-for American servicemen.

A detailed DNA analysis identified one set of remains as those of Major Storms and he was declared accounted for. A plane carrying Storms’ remains flew into DFW Airport Wednesday morning.

The flight continued on to Washington D.C. and the McAllen native and Texas A&M graduate will be interred with full military honors Friday at Arlington National Cemetery.
