This fucking rocks.
Eighteen years, people. Essentially two decades of uncertainty.
I remember LtCdr Speicher's story from when I was a child, of course. I know he was first listed as KIA, but there were still some questions.
I vaguely remember hearing about his status being changed to missing and thinking what a hellish thing that must be for his widow and her new husband (who, if I recall correctly, was a buddy of Speicher's). This is to say nothing of the emotional toll it had to have taken on his children.
It made me very happy to find this story this morning. We all know how it works. No one gets left behind if we can help it. I'm glad he'll be going home. Finally.
