PostSubject: Korean War Soldier PFC Glenn Schoenmann’s Remains Will Return After 62 Years   Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:18 pm

Quote :


Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder solemnly announce that the body of Private First Class Glenn Schoenmann will finally be laid to rest after 62 years.

Schoenmann was assigned to Company M, 3rd Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division in the U.S. Army when he was involved in the infamous Battle of Chosin Reservoir in North Korea on Nov. 28, 1950. The Grundy County native reportedly died as a Prisoner of War on Dec. 29, 1950. Family members say Schoenmann’s remains were recovered in 2004, but the identification process was finalized in Dec. 2012.




Quote :
“The Schoenmann family has waited 62 years to give Glenn a proper burial, and we join them in remembering his service and sacrifice,” Gov. Haslam said. “As a state, we mourn the loss of PFC Schoenmann, but we are grateful for his return to his home and family.”

“PFC Schoenmann’s courage and bravery to serve his country will be recognized and remembered by his fellow Tennesseans,” Grinder said. “The closure for the Schoenmann family is continued proof we should never give up until all of our missing in action and prisoner of war service members have been brought home.”
