ABC News/Luis Martinez(INDIANAPOLIS) — The sons of a missing Korean War soldier received some closure today as they were presented with their father’s dog tag that was included among the 55 boxes of human remains turned over by North Korea last week.“This is my father” said Charles McDaniel Jr., 71, of the dog tag that was presented to him and his brother Larry, 70, by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Office during a ceremony in Arlington, Virginia.The dog tag belonged to their father, Army Master Sergeant Charles Hobart McDaniel, who was serving as a medic with the First Cavalry Division when he was reported missing in northern Korea in October, 1950. The slightly corroded, stainless steel dog tag they received retains some of its shine and clearly says “McDANIEL,CHARLES H.” and includes his serial number “RA17000585.”The dog tag was included in one of the 55 boxes of human remains turned over by North Korea last week that are believed to be American service members missing in the Korean War. Some of the boxes also included other American made artifacts like boots, buttons, canteens and even a steel combat helmet.“We’re just overwhelmed,” said Charles Jr., “that out of all these boxes that came back, and out of all of these thousands of people, we’re the only ones that have certitude.”Charles Jr. acknowledged to reporters that it’s unclear whether his father’s remains might actually be contained among the boxes and that in the end he and is brother might only have the dog tag, but that might not matter — “which is wonderful,” he said. The 71-year-old former Army chaplain from Indianapolis, Indiana only has vague memories of his father because he was 3 years old when his father was reported missing.But his younger brother Larry bluntly stated, “I have absolutely no memory of my father”.“I really don’t know anything about him,” said Larry. “I guess you generate your image of what you think about your father. And for me, it’s that I’m proud of what he did and what he accomplished.”He said for him the dog tag represented the thousands of other American service members of his father’s generation who served in uniform.“I’m proud that my father was extremely patriotic, loved the country to death, that he was able to dedicate his entire life for the country without hesitation,” said Larry. “But the thing is he was one of thousands of guys of that generation that did it and I don’t think the fact that we found his dog tag should overshadow that.”The presentation of the dog tag capped an emotional week for the brothers who were notified of the dog tag’s recovery shortly after it was located among the 55 remains.Charles Jr. told reporters he was overcome with emotion when he received the call from the U.S. Army.“I sat there, and I cried for a while and took a while to compose myself,” he said.He served 34 years in the Army, first as a Green Beret, and then after graduating from college and seminary he served as a chaplain, rising to the rank of colonel. His younger brother Larry, from Jacksonville, Florida worked as a college football coach at various universities including the University of Washington, Holy Cross College and Eastern Kentucky University.The McDaniel brothers do not have definite plans for the dog tag right now, Charles Jr. thinks he will end up with it though he joked it might come after arm wrestling with his brother.Along with the dog tag, the brothers were presented with a box containing the ribbons and medals that their father earned during his Army career, including a Bronze Star for Valor from combat in World War II and a Purple Heart from his service in Korea.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Kingsmill has spotted a gap in the market and filled it with a new smooth loaf, baked with oats and wheat, branded Oatilicious. The firm said it has looked to what’s popular within the breakfast cereal market and has applied it to bread. “Oat-led products, combining the goodness of wholegrain oats with great taste, are already popular in other categories, but Kingsmill Oatilicious is the first branded loaf of its kind in the bread category,” said Michael Harris, Kingsmill marketing controller. Hitting the shelves this month, the loaf will be supported by a £1.3m marketing campaign. Looking at the health trend, research by Kingsmill revealed that 22% of food choices are made with health benefits in mind. However, as Kingsmill believed the health benefits of oats are well-known to consumers, it felt it should concentrate on the ’taste’ message when marketing.The loaf has been developed to fit into the ’healthier white’ segment of the market, now worth £186.5m (source: Nielsen).Taste tests showed consumers’ opinion of the product improved once they had tasted it, compared to their perception of what it might be like beforehand.

Published on March 2, 2011 at 12:00 pm Comments In all three years of the program’s existence, the season has finished the same way for Syracuse. It faces Niagara in the first round of the playoffs.By now, head coach Paul Flanagan and his teams are used to the routine.‘There are no unknowns,’ Flanagan said of the matchup with Niagara. ‘Sometimes when you watch tape on a team you haven’t played, it’s hard to pick little nuances up. So I think just the fact that we’ve competed means we know each other pretty well.’Syracuse’s playoff stretch, a stretch that will be started and completed in a matter of three days, begins Friday at Tennity Ice Pavilion. Robert Morris and Wayne State will meet in Thursday’s play-in quarterfinal with the right to take on top-seeded Mercyhurst. Meanwhile, the winner of the Syracuse-Niagara matchup Friday will reach the conference title game Saturday to face the winner of Robert Morris-Wayne State and Mercyhurst.Winners of its final two regular-season games, Syracuse (13-15-6, 7-6-3 College Hockey America) enters the playoffs perhaps with increased expectations. The four Saturday goals marked SU’s highest scoring output since Jan. 14.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘That was a good precursor for what to expect now Friday,’ junior forward Megan Skelly said. ‘We definitely have positive energy going in, and we have some confidence because we did beat them both nights.’Recent momentum aside, the back-to-back victories weren’t enough to leapfrog Niagara in the conference standings, as the Purple Eagles (11-6-5, 8-6-2) will enter the playoffs as the second seed. SU is 2-2 against Niagara this season, so the success of late certainly doesn’t warrant overconfidence.‘But we also can’t get too confident in our abilities,’ Skelly said. ‘Because, you know, we have to get ready and prepare. Perfect our passes and come together as a team.’The two schools have split the previous two playoff meetings. As a No. 4 seed in 2009, SU fell to the Purple Eagles 3-2. As a No. 3 seed last year, it won 5-3.Although Niagara’s stronger playoff seed this season will give them a technical home-ice advantage, Syracuse will be playing in its home building. Something that certainly bodes well for the Orange. Niagara finished this year 4-10-4 on the road (3-4-1 in conference), and the Orange season concluded with an 8-7-3 mark at home (6-2 in conference).In 2011, the two schools split their four-game season series with each team sweeping the other playing at home. Including the playoffs, SU leads the all-time series by a slim 7-4-2 margin.‘We’re pretty familiar,’ goaltender Kallie Billadeau said of Niagara. ‘But the main thing we’re focusing on is driving the net and crashing for rebounds. They collapse into their goalie, so they block a lot of shots. Getting a lot of shots on net is our main goal.’Billadeau, a first-year player who will get her first look at the in-state postseason match up this weekend, finished the season with a 2.87 goals-against average after playing in 20 of the team’s 34 games. Her 541 saves trail her Niagara counterpart, Jenni Bauer, who had 702 saves in eight more games.Though Syracuse and Niagara are separated by a difference of 165 miles, the two schools are much closer on the ice. Only three wins separate the teams in the all-time series, and they’ve each scored seven total goals in the four games this season.Friday’s playoff game will be commonplace for two teams that have both been there before. It might come down to which team can throw in a new wrinkle that provides even the slimmest advantage.‘Well, there’s no secrets between either team,’ Flanagan said. ‘We played each other four times this year and also most recently. They might throw a couple twists from last weekend, but I think we’re pretty evenly balanced. We match up well against each other.’[email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+
