GREEN BAY, WIS. — The remains of a World War II soldier from Wisconsin have returned to Green Bay nearly 70 years after his death.

Relatives of Army Air Force Staff Sgt. David Kittredge accepted his cremated remains from an Army honor guard Monday. They escorted the remains to the Nicolet Memorial Gardens in the Town of Scott.

Kittredge of Oneida was born in 1922 and served as a radio operator during the war. His B-26 bomber was shot down in April 1945.

Human remains from the crash were discovered in Germany in 2012. The Armed Forces DNA identification lab identified Kittredge.

A memorial service with full military honors is scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday at the memorial gardens.
