NEW CASTLE, Del. -- On May 11, 1975, U.S. Marine Gregory S. Copenhaver called his mother to wish her a happy Mother's Day. He also sent her a charm for her bracelet -- which arrived a few weeks after Copenhaver's helicopter crashed in the Gulf of Thailand, taking his life. That was a quarter-century ago. But during all those years, Copenhaver's mother, Mary E. Mills, has never been able to say a final goodbye. While presumed dead, Copenhaver was classified as missing in action. That changed on Thursday, when the Department of Defense identified the Cecil County native's remains, along with those of five other servicemen on his chopper.

RISING SUN -- Gregory S. Copenhaver, a wide-eyed high-school graduate, set off from here in August 1974 to fight in Vietnam. Yesterday, his remains lay in a flag-wrapped casket, sitting inside a funeral home in this tiny Cecil County town. Rising Sun hasn't had practice welcoming home war heroes -- at least not recently. But this community of 1,300 has mobilized to pay tribute. The soldier was killed in the line of duty in 1975, but was listed as missing in action until his remains were identified through DNA testing this month.
