POW/MIA Korean War, Todd Co. PRUE

Classification: Query
Surnames: PRUE
I am searching for the family of a soldier who was killed in the Korea War. When he entered service he gave Todd County (Okreek), South Dakota as his home of record.

Soldier: ROBERT FRANCIS PRUE
Born: May 20, 1924
Date of loss: DEcember 15, 1950 MIA

When the Korean War ended the enemy never returned or accounted for over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in their hands. That was over 50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected and also they are recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated to return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons some families have not been located. There are 11 families in South Dakota that have not been located. There is one family from Todd County that has not been located.

When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (76 years) Combat Veteran out of the Korean War and thankful that I did return. I consider this a very noble cause and I hope that you can help in some way to find this family. For more information on the project you may go to http://www.jpac.pacom.mil/. My part in the program is to match up the lost families with the proper agency.

I will be grateful for any assistance in locating this family.
