(Liberty, IN)--A fallen soldier is coming home to Union County on Thursday.  It’s been more than 65 years since Gerald Shepler, who was known to his friends as “Bud”, left Union County to fight in the Korean War.  He never came home and was officially listed as missing in action for decades.  That ended last year, when DNA testing of surviving relatives helped to identify Shepler’s remains.  ON Thursday, those remains will be brought home.  A military procession will bring the remains into Union County at around 1:30 Thursday afternoon.  A full military funeral will take place on Saturday at Dunlapsville Cemetery near the northern edge of Brookville Lake.
