Soldier: BILLY ALLEN DEBORD
Born: October 23, 1931. Caucasian
Date of loss: July 25, 1950. MIA

DNA samples have been obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For various reasons some families have not been located. There are 51 families in Ohio that have not been located.

When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to the family for proper burial. I am just an old (76 y
