JPAC Admits To Phony Ceremonies Honoring ‘Returning’ Remains

 

 

” The Department of Defense unit charged with recovering servicemembers’ remains abroad has been holding phony “arrival ceremonies” for seven years, with an honor guard carrying flag-draped coffins off of a cargo plane as though they held the remains returning that day from old battlefields.

The Pentagon acknowledged Wednesday that no honored dead were in fact arriving, and that the planes used in the ceremonies often couldn’t even fly, and were towed into position. The story was first reported on nbcnews.com.

The ceremonies at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii are held up as a sign of the nation’s commitment to its fallen warriors. They have been attended by veterans and families of MIAs, led to believe that they were witnessing the return of Americans killed in World War II, Vietnam and Korea.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Melting Alaska Glacier Reveals Military Plane Crashed In 1952

 

 

 

” Alaska National Guard crews discovered relics from an Air Force cargo plane that slammed into a mountain in November 1952, killing all 52 servicemen on board. More material comes up to the surface as the glacier melts, including some human remains.

 
Identifications are expected to be announced in the near future, said Dr. Gregory Berg who leads the team. The remains will be sent to a laboratory in Hawaii for analysis, including possible DNA matches with surviving relatives. So far, only the lightest pieces have been pushed to the glacier’s surface, and only a small portion of the 154-foot aircraft has emerged. “We don’t have all 52 guys lined up neatly, ready to be located,” Berg said.”
