Soldier Killed in Korean War Accounted For (Bullis)

Army Cpl. Milton T. Bullis, killed in the Korean War, has now been accounted for.


In late November 1950, Bullis was a member of Medical Company, 9th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division, fighting units of the Chinese People’s Volunteer Forces (CPVF) in North Korea, in a delaying action south to Kunu-ri. Within days, the regiment had lost half of its assigned men against attacks from the CPVF. The unit was ordered to withdrawal, and when Bullis could not be accounted for, he was declared missing in action on Dec. 1, 1950.


In April and May of 2005, a Joint Recovery Team conducted the 37th Joint Field Activity in Unsan County, South Pyongan Province, North Korea.


Lab analysis, in conjunction with the totality of circumstantial evidence available, established Bullis’ remains were included.


Interment services are scheduled for Oct. 21 in Holly, Michigan.


Welcome home and rest in peace, Cpl. Bullis.
