HOBART, Ind. (AP) - The remains of a northwestern Indiana man missing for more than 60 years after a World War II bomber crash will soon be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
Relatives of 2nd Lt. William Shryock of Hobart say they're relieved to finally know what happened to him and will travel to Washington for next week's burial.
The military confirmed Shryock's remains after excavating a site in New Guinea where the B-24D Liberator with its crew of 12 men crashed in 1943. Shryock was 23 at the time.
Patricia Flowers tells The Times of Munster that the family has always been proud of her uncle's service. Flower's 83-year-old mother was in eighth grade when her brother went missing and has been given his ID bracelet, St. Christopher medal and bombardier wings.
