RACINE - A Racine veteran's remains were identified almost 70 years after the soldier went missing.
Cpl. Donald Baer's family is getting ready to welcome their loved one home on an honor flight just in time for Veterans Day.
"We are just thrilled with the news," said Janet Baril, his sister.
At 18, Baer enlisted in the army in Racine. He disappeared in South Korea in 1950 and was declared dead three years later. Baer was one of 13 kids. His sister Janet Baril was five when she was told her brother died.
