RIVERSIDE, Calif.—A World War II airman has been buried in California 67 years after his bomber crashed on a southwest Pacific island.
B-24 tail gunner Claude “Bud” Ray’s whereabouts were a mystery for six decades, then a New Guinea villager found the wreckage in the jungle seven years ago. Army investigators identified him this year through DNA analysis.
