Remains of Korean War veteran return home to upstate NY; welcomed by 80-year-old sister

The remains of a Korean War soldier who died in battle in 1950 have been returned home to upstate New York.

The 80-year-old sister of Cpl. Elmer Kidd welcomed her brother's flag-draped casket at Hancock Airport in Syracuse on Tuesday.

Kidd was 26 when he died in the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. His remains were among those in 208 boxes turned over to the U.S. by North Korea in 1993 but they were only recently identified through DNA tests.

A funeral will be held Friday and Kidd will be buried at the Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Romulus in Seneca Falls.

Kidd was from the town of Seneca Falls in the Finger Lakes.
