    I heard an Army Airman was being put to rest today in Tipton, Indiana. He was 18 years old when his plane was shot out of the sky over Italy. I can't remember the name or the rest of the story as I was just pulling into work when it came on, but I thought I'd share it.

    Thanks for posting this, guys. It's great to see a MIA being brought home, even though it took 72 years. From the above article:
