A Bowling Green soldier's body is brought home and buried, after missing for more than 50 years.
Private Henry Mathus was buried in Fairview cemetery next to his parents and brother in a plot that already beared a headstone in honor of his memory.
Mathus was listed as missing in action in November of 1950, during the Korean War.
Military officials identified Mathus' body early this year.
Members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1298 and the Fort Campbell based 101st Airborne AIr Assault Division, participated in the burial.
