Another fallen brother-in-arms returns home to receive belated final honors.
Naval aviator LT Richard Laws was lost over North Vietnam in 1966. At the time, he was assigned to Attack Squadron 24 operating from the USS Hancock.
At the time, he was presumed dead.
His remains were later recovered. However, at the time of recovery they could not be positively identified.
Recent DNA testing has confirmed that the remains are indeed those of LT Laws. He will be interred at the US Naval Academy on May 10, 2013.
Welcome home, my elder brother-in-arms. Welcome home at last.
