Simply amazing, it really makes one feel good that our Government will go to these lengths for our fallen. We recently had a Pearl Harbor KIA sailor returned home.

A damn cool thing to happen for the family, after all these years. This kind of thing matters a lot, to have your loved one finally home. I'd love to see this kind of news more regular.

That's because it doesn't fit in the master plan.

No better way to show patriotism than to celebrate the home coming of a lost hero.
