Soldier Accounted For From Korea (Dupont, D.)


The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced today that Army Cpl. Donald L. Dupont, 22, killed during the Korean War, was accounted for Jan. 24, 2023.

In late 1950, Dupont was a member of B Company, 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. He was reported missing in action on Dec. 2, 1950, during battle with enemy forces near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea. Following the battle, his remains could not be recovered, and there is no evidence that he was never a prisoner of war.
