Dorothy Gordon Gayheart clutched an enhanced color photograph of her baby brother tightly in her worn, wrinkled hands as she intently studied another photograph and diagram of his remains. Tears sprang to her weathered, but sharp eyes as she looked at him for the first time since he left Grant County when he joined the Korean War as a soldier.

Paul Marshall Gordon went missing in January 1951, but his family never gave up hope as they spent 60 years waiting for him to come home. His remains were removed from Hawaii and returned to Williamstown on Tuesday, June 17 for a burial with full military honors in the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery North.
