This woman searched for her MIA husband for 68 years - you'll never believe what she found | Military History DSODE | Scoop.it
I couldn't imagine what it would be like to lose my husband overseas in combat. But what would be even worse is not knowing for sure what happened. The wife of a WWII pilot who was missing in action waited more than 68 years for solid answers. What she found is not what you'd expect!

Al Picozzi's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:08 AM

An amazing discovery that was left alone since 1942.  You have to remember in this part of the South Pacific there was major fighting in this area.  The Battle of the Coral Sea and Guadalcanal were very important turning points in World War II.  The British and the Australians, mainly the Australians, stopped the Japanese advance on their march to take Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea which was a majpr base which stopped the Japanese from invading Australia.  This theater of war was extremely important that covered thousands and thousands of miles, even greater than the land war on the Eastern Front.
