Interesting and amazing, but at the same time why has so much effort been expended over a span of 70 years to recover just one aircraft and body? In the grand scheme of things is it really worth it?

They gave their life for our Country. It does not matter how long it takes, they need to be brought home. POW/MIA Bring them home or send us back.
