Spotlight On: Cpl. Daniel F. Kelly

On November 26, 1950 Cpl. Kelly went missing in action, never to be seen again. In 2002 his remains were discovered and, after a 15 year identification process, returned to his family for burial with full military honors in the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies on September 8, 2017.
