Another Soldier Comes Home

Slowly but slowly we are finding and identifying the unknown soldiers from our many wars so they can be laid to rest and their families can find some closure.

Another unknown from World War 2 has been identified and returned home…..

The remains of a World War II pilot from New York City have been identified more than 70 years after he was killed in combat, the AP reports. The Pentagon’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced Monday the remains of Army Air Forces 2nd Lt. Charles E. Carlson, of Queens, have been identified after being found last year by History Flight, a private Florida-based group.

Military officials say Carlson was the 24-year-old pilot of a P-47 Thunderbolt fighter that was shot down near Bonn, Germany, during a dog fight with German planes Dec. 23, 1944. German officials reported burying Carlson’s remains at the crash site, but post-war efforts to find them were unsuccessful until his case was reopened in 2008. Carlson’s remains will be buried Friday at the Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania

Welcome home…may you now Rest in Peace and your family can have peace they deserve…..
