Cheyenne River soldier's remains coming home
The remains of Arthur Francis Jewett, a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe of South Dakota who died in combat during the Korean War, are finally coming home.

Jewett was killed in North Korea around November-December 1950. He was buried in a mass grave and his family was never given a firm answer on his status.

DNA testing finally confirmed Jewett's identity earlier this year. He will be reburied on the reservation on September 25.

"It means we can be calm now, we can relax after all these years," his brother Louis Jewett told The Rapid City Journal. "He'll be home ... and we'll feel better because of that."
