RIP - Captain Scott Speicher

In Iraq, Marines recently found remains of a body that has since been identified as being Navy pilot Scott Speicher who crashed during the first Gulf War in 1991. Captain Speicher had been officially designated as Missing in Action or Missing/Captured. False rumors and misinformation led investigators to believe he was being held by the Hussein regime. I can only imagine the anguish his family has endured over the years as their hopes were raised and then dashed. I hope this news, while not what they wanted to find out, will at least give them some measure of closure.

Rest in Peace - Captain Speicher.
