Graveside funeral held for Army officer who died as POW during the Korean War

A horse-drawn caisson brought the remains of an Army corporal who died while a prisoner of war in North Korea to his final resting place on Saturday.

The remains of Army Cpl. Floyd J.R. Jackson were returned to Colorado on Thursday after he was identified using DNA from relatives.

Jackson was buried next to his mother at Olinger Chapel Hill Cemetery in Centennial.

Jackson was reported kidnapped in 1950 when his team was attacked by overwhelming numbers of Chinese forces near Chosin Reservoir.

A returning service member told U.S. officials that Jackson died in 1951 while in an enemy prisoner of war camp.
