Status of ND Veteran To Change On Vietnam Memorial

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp says the status designation of a serviceman from Fargo will be changed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
    
The remains of Air Force Lt. Col. Wendell R. Keller were found last year. He went missing in action on March 1, 1969.
    
Keller's name currently has a cross next to it, which represents missing veterans. His designation will be changed to a diamond, which denotes confirmed death.
    
A ceremony is scheduled Sunday in Washington.
    
Heitkamp says Keller made the ultimate sacrifice for the country and hopes the ceremony will bring some comfort to his friends and family.
