For 63 years, Clara Gantt waited for her husband, Army Sgt. 1st Class Joseph Gantt, to return home after being declared a POW in the Korean War.
On Friday at LAX, the 94-year-old widow stood from her wheelchair and cried as her husband’s flag-draped casket finally arrived home.
“I am very, very proud of him. He was a wonderful husband, an understanding man,” she said.
