WASHINGTON, July 16, 2018 —Army Pvt. Delbert J. Holliday, killed during the Korean War, was accounted for on July 12, 2018.
In November 1950, Holliday was a member of Company C, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 7th Cavalry Division, participating in combat actions against the Chinese People’s Volunteer Forces (CPVF) in the vicinity of North Pyongan Province, North Korea. Holliday was killed in action on Nov. 30, 1950 and was reportedly buried in the United Nations Military Cemetery (UNMC) Pyongyang. As the United Nations’ situation with North Korea worsened, circumstances forced UNMC Pyongyang on Dec. 3, 1950, and buried remains could not be recovered.
DPAA is grateful to the Department of Veterans Affairs for their partnership in this mission.
Interment services are pending; more details will be released 7-10 days prior to scheduled funeral services.
Holliday’s name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the Punchbowl, along with the others who are missing from the Korean War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.
