I am searching for the family of Three soldiers who was killed in the Korea War. When they entered service they gave Cabarrus County, North Carolina as their home of record.

Soldier: DANIEL DULIN
Born: April 14, 1931. Caucasian
Date of loss: October 21, 1950. KIA

Soldier: JOSEPH EDWARD MILLER
Born: Jan. 21, 1939. Caucasian
DOL. Feb. 22, 1951, POW

Soldier: JACK RICHARDSON
Born: October 25, 1930. Caucasian
DOL, November 7, 1951 MIA

When the Korean War ended the enemy never returned or accounted for over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in their hands. That was over 50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected and also they are recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated to return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons some families have not been located. There are 40 families from North Carolina that have not been located. There are three families from Cabarrus County that has not been located.

When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (76 years) Combat Veteran out of the Korean War and thankful that I did return. I consider this a very noble cause and I hope that you can help in some way to find these families. For more information on the project you may go to http://www.jpac.pacom.mil/. My part in the program is to match up the lost families with the proper agency.

I will be grateful for any assistance in locating these families.
