Both men died in the Battle of Unsan in November 1950, according to news releases issued by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.

Scientists at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency laboratory at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii identified the soldiers using DNA and other data.

Last month, Charles McDaniel Jr., 71, and Larry McDaniel, 70, received their father’s dog tag which was discovered in the cases returned in July, WTVD-TV reported.

Jones was a member of U.S. Army Company E, 2nd Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, officials said.

His unit engaged Chinese forces near Pakchon, North Korea, on Nov. 26, 1950.
