Fort Knox, Kentucky — The bodies of Oklahoma soldiers killed during the Korean War will be buried in Arlington National Cemetery on June 2.

Army Sergeant James L. Kuon, from Norman, Oklahoma, was the captain of the Army Reserve during World War II, but abandoned his mission to join the regular army during the Korean War.

Kuon was subsequently reported missing on December 2, 1950, after being attacked by enemy forces near Lake Chosin in North Korea. His body could not be recovered after the battle. Almost 70 years later, Kuon’s remains were handed over by North Korea.

He was officially accounted for by the Defense POW / MIA Accounting Office in 2020.

More than 7,500 Americans have not yet been described in the Korean War.
