Pilot’s remains back on AMERICAN soil from Vietnam after 52 years

SAN DIEGO – It took 52 years, but a daughter has finally brought her father’s remains back on AMERICAN soil from Vietnam.

Deborah Crosby and her brothers got a coffin with the remains of their father Commander Lt. Frederick P. Crosby on Friday in San Diego. Frederick Crosby’s aircraft was shot down in 1965, when his daughter was six years old.

Last year, military investigators found his remains on the bottom of a pond in Vietnam.

Deborah Crosby says that they are for decades, to ask about the progress of her father in the case and provides you with everything to help in the search, including her aunt’s DNA.

Frederick Crosby will be buried with full military honors on Sunday.
