Finding the fallen

Over half a century has passed, but thousands of WWII U.S. servicemen and women still remain unaccounted for.

In the jungles of Papua New Guinea, a chain of islands north of Australia, a Pentagon team of forensic anthropologists searches even today for the wreckage of over 2,000 downed U.S. fighter pilots who were embroiled in the Pacific Theater struggle against the Japanese army.

The Boston Globe has published a compelling multi-story series about the search for these lost warriors and the families they left behind.



Note: Apologies for cutting off a slice of the video player. Boston.com's Flash player wasn't built to industry standards; it has several problems: 1) the player is wider than the standard of 425px, 2) the normal way one would scale the player to make it fit into a narrower column doesn't work, 3) the player creates an unnecessary margin and also puts in that ugly gigantic Boston.com logo at the top. Very bad form.
