    U.S. Soldier MIA from Korean War Identified

    The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office announced today that the remains of a serviceman, missing in action from the Korean War, have been identified and are being returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

    Army Cpl. Primo C. Carnabuci of Old Saybrook, Conn. [/COLOR] Army Cpl. Primo C. Carnabuci of Old Saybrook, Conn., will be buried May 12 in his hometown. On Nov. 1, 1950, Carnabuci's unit, the 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, occupied a defensive position along the Kuryong River, near Unsan, North Korea. Chinese units attacked the area and forced a withdrawal. Almost 600 men, including Carnabuci, were reported missing or killed in action following the battle.

    In 2000, a joint U.S-Democratic People's Republic of Korea team, led by the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), excavated a mass grave discovered earlier in Unsan County, south of the area known as "Camel's Head." The team recovered remains of at least five individuals as well as military clothing.

    Analysts from DPMO and JPAC developed case leads with information spanning more than 58 years. They evaluated the circumstances surrounding the soldier's death and researched wartime documentation on the movements of U.S. and enemy forces on the battlefield.

    Among forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from JPAC used dental comparisons and the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory used mitochondrial DNA -- which matched that of Carnabuci's brother -- in the identification.

    With this identification, 7,997 service members still remain missing from the conflict.

    Requesting prayer for the family, friends, and loved ones of Army Cpl. Primo C. Carnabuci of Old Saybrook, Conn.
