FARGO (KFGO-AM) -- Army Corporal Cletus Lies was 20 when he was killed in the Korean War. The remains of the Bremen, North Dakota soldier were recently identified through DNA testing and arrived with a military escort at Hector International Airport in Fargo monday night.
Family members and veterans were there. His niece Jo Berg never knew her uncle. She said "the closure for my grandparents if they were alive would be...it's a kind of satisfaction for us."
Korean Vet John Anders of Hawley said the soldier's motto of "leave no man behind" has been honored.
Cletus Lies will be buried thursday in New Rockford, 64 years after he left home.
