Alexandra Csanadi's insight:

It was a wonderful thing for this family to have closure after all those years. That's what National POW/MIA Day is all about. Helping families who have lived with loss but not able to find this closure because of doubt and unsurity. Please promote and share your thoughts and support for awareness and advocacy to your local communities and public officers in helping bring all our Veterans home.

Russ, thank you for your post. Everything you said is exactly what we here in AR think. We have been rallying some really great support over the past year but until everyone agrees to act as one, we are simply just a individuals. Good luck and keep posting.
