The Joint Task Force, Full Accounting (JTFFA) conducted several recovery operations in and around the crash site during the 1990 timeframe. Remains were eventually recovered by excavation of the site and sent to the Army Forensic Laboratory in Hawaii. Family members were notified this year that the remains would be returned for burial with full military honors.

Finally home........where you belong,
back from the land of the VietCong.
I've suppressed my sentiments over the years,
the anger, the dreams, the sadness, the tears,
a recent call that proclaimed your return,
has started a vat of emotions to churn,
Our time together, I recall too often,
you must know you'll never be forgotten,
concluding....at last.....you're finally home.
