SALT LAKE CITY – The remains of Army Cpl. David B. Milano will be buried in Ogden on April 29. Milano, 17, was a member of the 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. The enemy attacked them near the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea on Dec. 2, 1950.

When the attack ended and the smoke cleared no one could find him.

Fast forward nearly 70 years to July 2018  following a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. North Korea handed over 55 boxes that were said to contain the remains of American servicemen who died during the Korean War.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency identified Milano’s remains as a part of that transfer.

A U.S. Army news release said the agency used circumstantial evidence and mitochondrial DNA, and Y chromosome DNA analysis to identify Milano.

According to the release, Milano’s name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, along with the others who are still missing from the Korean War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.More than 7,500 Americans remain unaccounted for from the Korean War.

Milano was from Chicago but the news release did not say why his remains are to be buried in Ogden.

Milano will be buried at Evergreen Memorial Park in Ogden on April 29 at 10 a.m.

Myers Mortuary is handling the arrangements but could not share any information about Milano’s connection to Ogden.
