Soldiers from the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment Caisson Platoon, and the U.S. Army Band, “Pershing’s Own” conduct military funeral honors with funeral escort for U.S. Army Sgt. Elwood M. Truslow in Section 33 of Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Va., April 22, 2022.<br />
<br />
From the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) press release:<br />
<br />
In late 1950, Truslow was a member of Company L, 3rd Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. He was reported missing in action on Dec. 12, 1950, after his unit was attacked by enemy forces as they attempted to withdraw near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea. Following the battle, his remains could not be recovered.<br />
<br />
On July 27, 2018, following the summit between the U.S. President and the North Korean Supreme Leader in June 2018, North Korea turned over 55 boxes, purported to contain the remains of American service members killed during the Korean War. The remains arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii on Aug. 1, 2018, and were subsequently accessioned into the DPAA laboratory for identification.<br />
<br />
To identify Truslow’s remains, scientists from DPAA used anthropological analysis, as well as circumstantial evidence. Additionally, scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System used mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), and autosomal DNA (auSTR) analysis.<br />
<br />
Truslow was officially accounted for on June 7, 2021. Truslow’s niece, Lucy Howe, received the U.S. flag from his funeral service.<br />
