Lawton Korean War vet finally laid to rest

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla_The remains of a Lawton soldier missing from the Korean War have been identified and returned to his family. Army Captain Turnace Brown was 28 years old when he went missing in late November of 1950.

He was with the 31st Regimental Combat Team, known as "Task Force Faith." His remains were discovered after North Korea gave the United States more than 200 boxes believed to contain the remains of up to 400 U.S. service members.

Brown's remains were matched to his sister and niece.

He'll be buried with full military honors tomorrow in Gainesville, Florida.
