Korean War MIA soldier finally coming home to rest

By Stan Welch

A family with ties to the Pelzer area is preparing to welcome a long lost relative home this week, only to lay him to his final rest more than sixty years after he died in North Korea.

Private First Class John Russell Bowers, who was serving with the 2nd Infantry Division in 1951, when the North Korean Army, bolstered by a massive Red Chinese presence, swept across the battle lines, overwhelming American forces. After Feb. 14, 1951 Bowers was listed as MIA, or missing in action.

According to official reports by the Defense Department, and based on information provided by Chinese officials, Bowers apparently died in May of 1951 in a prison camp near Pyokdong. While time and circumstances make certainty impossible, it seems likely that Bowers died during an air raid on the camp.
