Private Gregory Wedel-Morales will be reinstated by the Army after a review of evidence, according to the soldier's mother.

Pvt. Wedel-Morales disappeared outside of Fort Hood on August 2019 and was declared AWOL by the Army.

On June 19, 2020, his skeletal remains were found in a field in Killeen. However, due to his AWOL status, the soldier was unable to receive military honors for his funeral.

Kim Wedel, Gregory's mother, told 25 News that based on evidence, he would be reinstated.

Wedel said her son will be able to receive a military funeral once the paperwork removing his AWOL status went through.
