Funeral procession for Korean War veteran set for Saturday

Cpl. Donald Victor MacLean was reunited with his family Wednesday, 63 years after he was declared missing in action during the Korean War.

MacLean’s remains were identified this year after new technology made it possible to match him with the remains of one of about 800 unidentified servicemen buried in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.

A procession Saturday will take MacLean’s remains from Justen Funeral Home, located at 3700 Charles Miller Road in McHenry, to Windridge Memorial Park & Nature Center, 7014 S. Rawson Bridge Road in Cary.

The procession starts at 12:15 p.m. and will include escorts from organizations and law enforcement agencies throughout McHenry County.

The route will head south on Green Street, which turns into Barreville Road; east on Nish Road; south on Valley View Road, across Route 176; east on Crystal Lake Avenue; and south on Rawson Bridge Road to the cemetery.
