Lt. Cmdr. Speicher

I recently read that a Marine patrol in Iraq found the remains of Navy Lieutenant Commander Michael Scott Speicher, who'd been missing in action since January, 1991. I hope it is some small consolation to his family to have a final answer at last.

I did a bit of research and learned that Lt. Cmdr. Speicher was the *only* MIA from Gulf War I- now there is not a single one.

During Viet Nam, there were 1,350; Korea 8,177; World War II 78,750. Whatever you think of the Gulf War, that's a very impressive record.
