Soldier Missing for 62 Years is Laid to Rest

Posted: Updated:

Remaining family and friends of Pvt James Green who returned home this week after 62 years away from his beloved county of Wheeler came out to pay their respects. 

Green was on board a military plane in 1952 carrying 52 people when it crashed in Alaska. 35 of those service members have yet to be found.

His remains were found in 2012, identified and returned home just this week.

Saturday, after an hour long Homecoming service held in the Spaulding Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Alamo, Ga, Pvt James Green with a caravan of vehicles following the hearse carrying his flag draped casket was driven through the winding roads and hills of Wheeler County to his finale resting place in Horne Missionary Cemetery.
