It had been less than a year since 1st Lt. Herman Falk had graduated from The Citadel, and the newly commissioned officer was on the front lines of the Korean War fighting for his life.

The 1950 graduate would never return to Charleston and was declared missing in action on Feb. 12, 1951, along with half of his platoon.

Nearly 70 years later, Falk’s remains were identified. Now, he will finally be laid to rest Thursday at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., The Citadel said in a news release.
