Navy pilot Scott Speicher's remains have reportedly been found, 18 years after his plane was shot down over Iraq during the Gulf War.
Finally, after all these years.
Many of us remember when Capt. Speicher was shot down, and many held out hope that the young American would be found. Weeks turned into months ... months turned into years ... and then we eventually focused on another war.
If it turns out the remains are indeed those of Scott Speicher, it will bring closure for his family and for America. Capt. Speicher was truly an American hero, and we are grateful for his sacrifice.
