Ohio Navy corpsman killed in Vietnam to be buried
CLEVELAND (AP) — A Navy corpsman from Ohio whose remains were found last year in Vietnam will be buried 46 years after his death in the Vietnam War.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports that Michael Judd will be buried Monday in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington. The 21-year-old Cleveland man was aboard a helicopter that crashed June 30, 1967. He had gone to Vietnam in 1966 and was killed less than two months before he was scheduled to return home.
Judd was with a Marine reconnaissance team when the aircraft was shot down.
Joint U.S. and Vietnam recovery teams found human remains and the helicopter wreckage last year. Judd was identified through dental comparisons and other means.
He was survived by his parents and a stepsister and brother.
