DALLAS (AP) - Military officials have identified the remains of a 20-year-old soldier from Dallas who was reported as missing in action in 1950 on the Korean peninsula.

The burial of Army Cpl. Albert E. Mills is scheduled for Nov. 12 in Dallas after testing earlier this year positively identified remains that had been buried for years as an unknown soldier who fought in the Korean War.

Mills was reported missing after his company attempted to block an advance by the Korean People’s Army in South Korea.

His remains were sent to Japan before being transferred to the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.

They were disinterred in April and testing along with circumstantial evidence allowed scientists to identify them.

More than 7,600 Americans remain unaccounted for from the Korean War.
