Reports indicate this site is nearly 14 miles from the 1952 crash location. Less than three weeks later, the U.S. military announced the discovery of the wreckage. The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command took over the operations and announced that the remains of 17 of the victims had been identified-- including Turner.Turner was born Jan. 17, 1928 in First Fork, son of the late Wilbur Edward and Pearl Mae Caldwell Turner. A 1946 Coudersport High School graduate, Turner joined the Air Force and graduated from the Air Force Navigation School in 1951. He served in the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Air Force from 1946 to 1952.He is survived by his sister, Mary Elizabeth Turner May, and many nieces and nephews.A memorial service was held Saturday at the Park United Methodist Church in Coudersport. Turner was then escorted by members of the Patriot Guard Riders and the Allegheny Mountain (Emporium) chapter of the Nam Knights on motorcycles to Gilmore Cemetery in Grove Township, near Sinnemahoning State Park.St. Marys, PAJoseph BellOver 60 years later, Turner at restDaily Fire Dept. honored with Fall Fest award2014-09-19T23:31:59-04:002014-09-19T23:31:59-04:00Copyright 2010 Daily PressThe ceremony, which serves as the official kickoff to the festival, was hosted by emcee John Salter and began with the pledge of allegiance and a prayer offered by Fr.
