    Pfc. Harvey Nichols Returns Home After 77 Years

    The Military Funeral Honors Detail of the Mississippi Army National Guard accept the remains of Army Pfc. Harvey Nichols Thursday, Sept. 5, 2019, during a ceremony at Medgar-Evers International Airport in Jackson. Nichols, of Braxton, Mississippi, died in a Japanese prison camp in 1942 of malaria and malnutrition at the age of 27 after surviving the Japanese invasion of the islands in December 1941 and the Bataan Death March. Thanks to new DNA testing, his remains were identified amidst 14 others in an unmarked grave and returned home for burial after 77 years. There is an open invitation from the family for visitation and services for Pfc. Nichols. Visitation will be Friday, Sept. 6, from 5-8 p.m. at Colonial Chapel of Mendenhall with services Saturday, Sept. 7, at 10 a.m. at Calvary Baptist Church. (U.S. Army National Guard photo by Sgt.
