Corporal Stephen P. Nemec

A veteran of the Korean War will be laid to rest in New Bern after his remains were identified last year. Army Corporal Stephen P. Nemec of Cleveland, Ohio was killed in action during heavy fighting on November 2, 1950 near Unsan, North Korea. He was buried at a United Nations cemetery in Pyongyang but as conditions worsened in North Korea those buried there could not be recovered. Following the war more than 4000 sets of remains were turned over to the UN, none of which could be associated with Cpl. Nemec.
