    Come June 29th, I will have been posting these obituaries for two years. And there seems to be no end in sight. Just this morning comes the news that FIVE troops were killed in Iraq - while they were sleeping.

    I will post details when they are available.

    I'm not sure I can continue with this. It is so very depressing, with no end in sight, and for what purpose?

    Oh, Gretchen, thank you so much for doing this and for all this time now too. I read every one of them, see the names, ages, homes, maybe pictures, and causes of death. You've made it all much more real: So much loss, so much heartbreak. And for what purpose, as you asked.

    God bless you, Gretchen, whether or not you are up to continuing for much longer.
    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    Missing Vietnam War Airman Identified

    The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that the remains of a serviceman, missing in action from the Vietnam War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

    Air Force Capt. Darrell J. Spinler of Browns Valley, Minn., will be buried on June 18 near his hometown. On June 21, 1967, Spinler was aboard an A-1E Skyraider aircraft attacking enemy targets along the Xekong River in Laos when villagers reported hearing an explosion before his aircraft crashed. The pilot of another A-1E remained in the area for more than two hours but saw no sign of Spinler.

    In 1993, a joint U.S.-Laos People’s Democratic Republic team, led by Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), interviewed villagers who witnessed the crash. They claimed Spinler’s body was on the river bank after the crash but likely washed away during the ensuing rainy season. The team surveyed the location and found wreckage consistent with Spinler’s aircraft.

    In 1995, the U.S. government evaluated Spinler’s case and determined his remains unrecoverable based on witness statements and available evidence. Teams working in the area revisited the location in 1999 and 2003 and confirmed Spinler’s remains had likely been carried away by the Xekong River. However, in 2010, JPAC conducted a full excavation of the location and recovered aircraft wreckage, human remains, crew-related equipment and personal effects.

    Among other forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command used dental x-rays in the identification of Spinler’s remains.

    With the accounting of this airman, 1,689 service members still remain missing from the conflict.
