POW/MIA Korean War CALAWAY

Classification: Query
Surnames: CALAWAY
I am searching for the family of a soldier who was killed in the Korea War. When he entered service he gave Brown County, Illinois as his home of record. His remains were never recovered.

Soldier: WILLIAM EDWARD CALAWAY
Born: September 19, 1929 Caucasian
Date of loss: July 16, 1950 POW

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. The Calaway family is one of those missing.

When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (78 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.
