It was a few months ago that North Korea returned 55 boxes of remains, along with McDaniel’s dog tag. 

The day was emotional for the McDaniel family. His two sons, their children and their grandchildren greeted the casket draped in an American flag at Indianapolis International Airport on Thursday afternoon. 

There was a military ceremony and prayer on the tarmac. 

The funeral for McDaniel will be held on Saturday. He’ll be buried in Greenwood.
