Remains Of Calumet Soldier Identified

A soldier from Calumet who has been missing since the Vietnam War has now been accounted for.

An announcement from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency earlier this month said the remains of Army Staff Sgt. Marshall F. Kipina were identified.

The aircraft Kipina was serving on was lost on a night mission over Laos in July 1966.

After it did not return, a search was conducted but no crash site was found.

The agency says the government and people of Laos were helpful in accounting for Kipina.

Kipina’s name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, along with others unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War.

A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.
