Vietnam War MIA’s remains found
CHILI, N.Y. — After 39 years of waiting, a Rochester, N.Y.-area family has learned that their son’s remains have been recovered in Vietnam.
Marine Pvt. James Widener, of Chili, was reported missing in action June 11, 1967, when his helicopter was shot down over South Vietnam. He had enlisted in the Marines after graduating high school in 1966 and volunteered for reconnaissance duty after arriving in Vietnam.
A helicopter he was riding in went down after being hit by ground fire. All seven aboard were reported missing in action.
Widener’s remains were recovered by Vietnamese officials and his parents learned the news Wednesday.
“His body was stored in a warehouse and they never let us know he was dead,” said his father, Jay Widener. “We tried to find him after the war, hoping for years that maybe he was alive. Even in war, there should be some fairness.”
Widener will receive a full military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery.
As of Jan. 1, 1,382 people remain missing from the Vietnam War, according to the U.S. Defense Prisoners of War-Missing Personnel Office.
Chili is a suburb of Rochester.
