US and Malaysia partnership brings fallen hero home
Members of the Malaysian military guard render one final salute as they transfer the remains of a fallen service member back to the U.S. during a repatriation ceremony at Subang Air Base, Malaysia, Nov. 5, 2015. The ceremony, performed by both U.S and Malaysian military, was the first of its kind between the two countries. The remains were recovered through joint efforts between the U.S. and Malaysia during a 25-day mission from Aug. 16 through Sept. 9, 2015, at a crash site near Beruas village, Manjung district, Perak state, Malaysia. The yet-to-be-identified service member was part of a C-47 twin engine transport airplane that crashed in November of 1945. The aircraft carrying a three-man crew was flying from Singapore to Butterworth, Malaysia. The mission of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency is to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
