A Korean War veteran will finally have the proper burial he deserves. On Saturday May 24 Corporal Harold W. Reed will be laid to rest next to his mother and sister in Toledo.
It may have taken decades to bring this war hero home but it will finally happen, and appropriately on Memorial Day weekend.
A Toledo marine who was killed in 1950 during the Korean War is now coming home to be laid to rest, thanks to a dedicated family member and an envelope.
Corporal Reed will be buried with full military honors. It is a 64-year-long tale of sadness and joy.
"And boy that just, that just took the joy out of everything," said Bill Power, Corporal Reed's brother-in-law.
The day after Christmas 1950, family members were notified that 23-year-old Corporal Reed died in action in North Korea. Power says he was a "battlefield burial."
"He was such a joyful person. There was many a Christmas that his sister would go back and cry because he was gone," said Power.
That sister was Millicent Power, Bill's wife. She and her mother always held out hope her brother would one day come home.
"And sorry but they both have since died and they're not here to see it," said Power.
Until recent years, they didn't know remains of some of dead were moved to the National Memorial Cemetery in Hawaii. Power sent an envelope from a letter that Corporal Reed sent to his mother during the war to POW-MIA officials. Late last month, the DNA from his saliva and x-rays of his wounds positively identified Reed's remains.
