WENATCHEE — About 300 crowded around a flag-draped casket earlier this year to finally say goodbye to a young soldier who died a long time ago but whose fate was unknown for more than six decades.

Edwin Galarneau was laid to rest with full active-duty military honors at the Wenatchee Cemetery in April — nearly 63 years after he was shot and taken prisoner during the Korean War. He was listed as missing in action until his remains were identified using DNA last summer.
