US and Malaysia partnership brings fallen hero home
A joint service team prepares to drape an American flag over a casket during a repatriation ceremony at Subang Air Base, Malaysia, Nov. 5, 2015. The 15-member team comprised of members of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency as well service members from U.S. Army Pacific and Pacific Air Force Command, was sent from Hawaii to honor the remains of a fallen service member who paid the ultimate sacrifice when his plane went down over Malaysia in 1945. The ceremony signifies the transfer of the remains from Malaysia back to the U.S. where the service member can be ultimately identified and returned home. The ceremony marks the first of its kind between the two countries. 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.
