      Remains of Frankfort man who died in WW II to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery

      Sgt. Dominick Licari


      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 (lih-KEHR'-ee) of Frankfort will be buried with full military honors in a single casket Thursday at Arlington, outside Washington, D.C.


      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.
