A SISTER GOES "ON A MISSION" TO LEARN FATE OF MIA BROTHER FROM KOREAN WAR

A Sacramento area resident, Mary Mitchell, remembers the night in 1950 when the town marshal knocked on her family's door in Cloverport, Ky, to inform them that their son--her brother--U. S. Army Cpl. Charles Patterson Whitler, was MIA in Korea.

The news of her brother going MIA caused her father to have a fatal heart attack that same night, leaving her mother with nine children to raise.

After decades of not knowing what happened to her brother, Mitchell decided to take matters into her own hands and find out what happened to her brother. Not only did she find out what happened to him, his remains were located.

After nearly six decades, a sister, and a family, finally gets closure.
