Remains of soldier being returned
HARLAN (AP) — Remains of an Iowa soldier who died in the Korean War are being returned for burial in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C.
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced Monday that the remains of Army Sgt. Donald Noehren, of Harlan, Iowa, will be buried April 3.
The agency says the 23-year-old Noehren was captured in November 1950 while fighting Chinese units in North Korea. His status was changed from missing in action to deceased the next year after two repatriated U.S. soldiers reported that Noehren had died at a prisoner camp on Jan. 22, 1951.
