A warm welcome Sunday in Superior as the remains of Korean War Soldier, Army Sgt. 1st Class Rufus Ketchum was escorted home. 

The family of Sgt. Ketchum waited 68 years to be able to properly bury their loved one who died at the age of 38 during a battle in North Korea in late 1950. 

His remains were flown into the Twin Cities Sunday afternoon and escorted to Superior through an honor guard motorcade, including the Minnesota Patriot Guard Riders.  

Ketchum's daughter says its a miracle her father is being brought back to their hometown of Superior.

A full burial service is scheduled for Ketchum on Tuesday.
