Cpl. Donald E. Angle

FORT HOOD — The remains of a 1st Cavalry Division soldier killed during the Korean War has been identified by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.

Using dental records, chest radiographs and other evidence, scientists with the agency identified Cpl. Donald E. Angle of Clear Spring, Maryland, on July 2. Angle was a member of Company C, 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division when he was reported missing in action in South Korea on July 25, 1950.

He was declared deceased on Dec. 31, 1953.

Angle’s remains were buried in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu after they were found in Korea in 1951. Because they could not be identified, the remains were buried as those of an unknown soldier. In August of last year, those remains were disinterred, tested and found to belong to Angle.

Angle’s remains will be reburied in Welsh Run, Pennsylvania, on Oct. 6.
