Walter Dixon had been married for just five days when he shipped off to Korea for his second war deployment.
About a year later, at age 22, he was declared dead. When his obituary was published in the local paper, his wife back home in Waynesville, Mo., had no way of knowing that the news was premature.
In reality, Dixon was alive behind enemy lines.
