NEW FRANKEN, WI (WTAQ) - A memorial service will be held Wednesday near Green Bay for a World War II soldier whose remains came home almost 70 years after he died.
Air Force Staff Sergeant David Kittredge of Oneida was a radio operator whose B-26 bomber was shot down in 1945 over Germany.
Human remains from the crash were found there in 2012, and an Armed Forces lab identified Kittredge through DNA.
His relatives accepted his cremated remains Monday. They were taken to Nicolet Memorial Gardens at New Franken, where a service is planned Wednesday with full military honors.
