    My uncle’s remains were found there during Operation Glory following Korean War. He was infantryman with Task Force Faith I Company, 3/31 and did not report with survivors on Dec. 3, 1950.
    The field case binder given by Army to me states he was found in an isolated burial site. Back cranial missing.
    Thank you very much for any insight. I am trying to determine where he was found so I can correlate to better date of death.

    • I’m trying to figure this out. I’ll let you know if I come up with something. The closest I’m getting is North Korea. There has to be a way to narrow it down to the exact location.

    • Looks like somewhere between Sinuiju and Packch’on. But I can’t find any more detailed maps.
