First Gulf War casualty found
Monday 03 August 2009
The remains of the first American lost in the Gulf War nearly two decades ago have been found in Iraq. The Pentagon said the remains were positively identified as Navy Captain Michael "Scott" Speicher.
They were found buried in the desert and located after officials received new information from an Iraqi citizen about a crash. Capt Speicher's disappearance has puzzled investigators since his fighter was shot down over the Iraqi desert on the first night of the 1991 Gulf War. The Pentagon initially declared that Capt Speicher had been killed, but uncertainty led officials to change his status a number of times. The captain's family had repeatedly pressed for the military to do more to resolve the case.
