The U.S. Army declared Fuller dead on Feb. 18, 1954 after his name appeared on a list of soldiers who died in the custody of the Chinese People's Volunteer Forces and the Korean People's Army. A fellow soldier said he was imprisoned as a POW with Fuller during the war.
Between 1990 and 1994, North Korea returned to the United States 208 boxes of commingled human remains, which were later determined to contain the remains of at least 400 U.S. servicemen who died during the war.
Fuller's remains were identified earlier this year through DNA analysis among other forensic tests.
The return of Fuller's remains follows a recent agreement between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that includes the recovery and return of U.S. service members who died in North Korea.
Almost 7,700 Americans are still missing or unaccounted for in the Korean War.
