Missing Korean War Soldier's Remains To Return Home

TRACY CITY, Tenn. - It's the news one Middle Tennessee family has been waiting more than 60 years for. The remains of a soldier missing in action during the Korean War will finally return home. Glenn Schoenmann from Grundy County went missing in action back in 1950.

The government presumed he was dead, but it was never able to find his remains, leaving his family wondering what happened to him; but last month, the government came through saying that it had located Schoenmann's remains. This gave his family the closure they say they have been looking for all this time.

"It's just like you were living it all over again," said Raymond Schoenmann, Glenn's brother.  "His memories really flooded back, the things we used to do; all the memories come back."

Schoenmann's family will meet with the United States government next week in Illinois to find out more details of his death.
