A Louisiana soldier who disappeared in action during the Korean War has finally come home and will soon have his resting place.

Army Sgt. Clement Thibodeaux Jr. died in a prisoner of war camp back in 1951. Then in 2005 an excavation team in North Korea made a startling discovery.

Thanks to his late brother's DNA donation Sgt. Thibodeaux was finally able to come home Friday.
