In 1966, we managed to bring some remains of 7 out of the 12 home. After that, the other 5 have sat on that glacier, waiting. As early as 1995, human remains could be seen. A great summary
For those of my generation, the young men who lost their lives on that JAN day were our fathers, and uncles. The national shame is that we have allowed so much time go by, letting the dishonor of leaving our dead on the field continue.
Well, cheer-up. This AUG, CAPT Tom Sparks USCG is leading a solid effort to bring everyone home. After 38 years, we are making another attempt to bring LA-8, and the VP-5 crew of P-2V 131521 home. Godspeed and good luck.
