Deputies with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office will aid Aug. 9, 2018, in escorting the remains of Army Cpl. Terrell J. Fuller back to Toccoa for burial, 

Fuller was 20 when he was listed as missing during the Korean War. His remains were among those returned by North Korea in 1990 and positively identified earlier this year.

The procession, beginning at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is expected to pass through Hall sometime between 9 and 10 a.m., according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth. It will travel north on Interstate 85 to Interstate 985/Ga. 365 and on to Toccoa. Deputies will close the I-985 northbound on-ramps several minutes before the escort approaches.

“Our request is for motorists’ patience as the Hall County community shows honor and respect for Cpl. Fuller and his journey home,” Sheriff Gerald Couch said.
