WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government says it has identified the remains of three U.S. Army soldiers missing in action during the Vietnam War and will bury them Wednesday at Arlington National Cemetery.
The Department of Defense announced Monday that Master Sgt. Charles Newton of Canadian, Texas; Sgt. 1st Class Douglas Dahill of Lima, Ohio; and Sgt. 1st Class Charles Prevedel of St. Louis, Mo., will be buried with military honors.
The government said the men and three Vietnamese soldiers were on a reconnaissance patrol in 1969 when they were ambushed and thunderstorms prevented rescue attempts. Subsequent searches turned up no signs of the men.
Between 1990 and 1993, the ambush site was excavated. Government scientists used circumstantial evidence and forensic tools, including dental comparisons and DNA, to identify the remains.
