FRANKFORT, NY- The recently identified remains of a World War II airman from upstate New York and a pilot from California will be buried as a group next week at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Pentagon's POW-Missing Personnel Office announced Thursday that the remains of Army Air Force 2nd Lt. Valorie Pollard of Monterey, Calif., and Sgt. Dominick Licari of Frankfort will be buried with full military honors in a single casket Thursday at Arlington, outside Washington.
The individually identified remains of Licari were buried on Aug. 6 in his hometown of Frankfort, near Utica.
Pollard and Licari were listed as missing in action after their bomber failed to return from a mission over Papua New Guinea in March 1944. The mountainside crash site was excavated last year, and their remains were identified earlier this summer.
