Korean War Veteran Honored, Remains Sent To Arlington National Cemetery
SAN ELIZARIO - Today a Korean War Veteran was honored, and afterwards his body was flown to the Arlington National Cemetery.
Corporal Eduardo Lalo Pedregon had been missing for 60 years, but his remains were recently found in Korea.
Hundreds of people, including Pedregon's brother, honored him on Saturday morning at the San Elizario Chapel.
"I couldn't ask for a better service for my brother, but I'm also glad that it's finally over," Robert Pedragon said. "He will be going to a better place than where he was found."
Corporal Pedregon was from San Elizario.
