A 19-year-old soldier from the Wyoming prairies who was declared missing in action 68 years ago in Korea was finally laid to rest June 29. The long-awaited burial came as President Donald Trump paid a historic first visit to North Korea and spoke confidently of the return of more remains.

In Kaycee, Wyoming, population 263 in the 2010 census, the white hearse carrying the remains of Army Cpl. DeMaret M. Kirtley, known as "Marston" to his sheep ranching family and friends, proceeded slowly Saturday past a small, flag-waving crowd to a cemetery on the outskirts.

Zena Husman, Kirtley's niece, told Wyoming's K2 Radio that her uncle "loved Wyoming and made the ultimate sacrifice for his country."

She said of him that "You're home now, where you belong, where you were loved all these years. You're where you're meant to be, where you'll never be forgotten."
Welcome home young man !
