Welcome Home, PFC Sappington

PFC Oscar Eugene Sappington will be returned to US soil Wednesday to be buried at home. He'd lain in a grave in Belgium for the last 70 years, one marked "Unknown." He was identified via family DNA recently.

PFC Sappington was killed in the Battle of Hürtgen Forest in January, 1945, while serving with the 309th Infantry Regiment, 78th Infantry Division.

Rest well, sir.
