FROZEN AIRMAN: To be buried in the same cemetery as parents.

The World War II airman whose body was found on a mountainside more than six decades after his plane crashed was raised by Finnish immigrant parents in this central Minnesota community.

Leo Mustonen, who was just 22 when he died preparing to join the war effort, was scheduled to be laid to rest Friday in his hometown, interred in the same cemetery where his parents are buried.
I'm glad this ordeal is over for at least one family; I hope the military makes an effort to recover the remains of the others from this flight.
