Remains 1945 US Plane Crash Site Returned by Malaysia

The Sun Herald reports that “the Malaysian government on Thursday returned to U.S. custody human remains recovered from the crash of a U.S. military transport plane in 1945.”  

“A wooden box containing remains from the crash site was handed over to an American military team at an airport ceremony attended by U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter. The box was placed inside a larger medal container by the Americans, a U.S. flag placed over it, and the container was then carried aboard a U.S. C-17 cargo plane for a flight to Hawaii. A Defense Department lab will attempt to identify them.”
