Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Discovery and positive identification

On August 2, 2009, the Navy reported that Speicher's remains were found in Iraq. His jawbone (which was used to identify him after study at the Charles C. Carson Center for Mortuary Affairs at Dover Air Force Base) was found in the desert, where according to local civilians, he was buried by Bedouins following his crash in 1991. This lends credibility to the theory that Speicher was never captured and likely died at the crash site. Senator Nelson attributed the delayed finding to the culture of the locality: "These Bedouins roam around in the desert, they don't stay in one place, and it just took this time to find the specific site."



respect...may his family find the peace in their hearts now he's coming home

Also worth to account for are the locals.
Instead of mutulating his corpse and dragging it through the streets( like in Somalia) Speicher was buried by them.
Which shows respect of them as well.

yes indeed, a noble act but they were Bedouins so not the regular locals
