The remains of two missing airmen have been accounted for 70 years after they disappeared when their plane went down over Papua New Guinea during World War II, U.S. military officials said.


Note: As we continue our national debate about what this country owes its veterans, I think a story like this helps keep things in perspective. I’m thinking specifically of the mother who refused forever after to discuss her missing son, clinging to the hope that he would one day show up at her door and all would be well again. Would any of you argue that she made any less of a sacrifice than many of our WWII vets?
