Re: vmb423 2007 reunion
JPAC actually made three recovery missions to the crash site with the last one being this past summer. The first visit in 2008 was hampered by bad weather but the team did have some success. Remains were recovered each time, I believe, as well as dog tags and other items. The remains have been sent to the laboratory for identification; however, they are tremendously overloaded with that type work so we don't know when we may receive word on DNA matches. We are hopeful that it won't take too long.
