Body of Local soldier killed in World War II finally coming home

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) --  A Middleton man has spent the past two years trying to bring home the remains of a World War II veteran, and on June 11th his hard work and determination will pay off.

This Sunday the Wisconsin State Journal will feature a piece about a local filmmaker who fought to get the remains brought back from Germany to Madison.

After years of back and forth, local journalist and filmmaker Jed Henry enlisted the help of multiple agencies to recover and bring back the remains of World War II veteran, Private First Class Lawrence Gordon.
Next month Henry and members of Gordon's family are going to be traveling to France to retrieve the remains and bring them back to Madison.

This Sunday, State Journal reporter Steve Verburg takes a look at how this all came about.
