  • Sparks 65 years later North Korea in 1951

    I found this and thought it may be of intrest and I have no idea what DNA company they used and don't care which one.

    Cambridge honored missing hometown veteran CPL Ronald M. Sparks 65 years later, after the US Army positively identified his remains through a 100% DNA match. Sparks, a Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient died at age 20 in a prisoner of war camp in North Korea in 1951. Sparks' father's dying wish was for his son to come home to Cambridge and that wish came true today. The City's Veterans' Services Department worked closely with the family to plan a special welcome home event and invited the Cambridge community to join us in greeting the motorcade that escorted Sparks' remains from Logan Airport, by his former residence on River Street, and on to City Hall for a special ceremony. We thank all who came to join us in commemorating this very special occasion"
