 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
In late November 1950, Lucas was assigned to the Heavy Mortar Company, 31st Infantry Regiment making up part of the 31st Regimental Combat Team (RCT), then engaging enemy forces east of the Chosin Reservoir near Kaljon-ri, South Hamgyong Province, North Korea. On Nov. 29, remnants of the RCT began a fighting withdrawal to more defensible positions near Hagaru-ri, south of the reservoir. Lucas never made it to the lines at Hagaru-ri and was last seen on Nov. 30.

He was taken prisoner and died at Uisa-Ri known as Little Death Valley during the Death March to Kanggye.

His remains were later found in 2011 through DNA and interred in Arlington.
He will be buried July 11, 2008 in Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, D.C.
