C'mon now TV boy. I wanted YOU to try to put some substance into your post, not copying and pasting a bunch of jibberish from another website like you did above.
Here's the website you got it from. It's all there, word for word.
Three strikes, you're out knucklehead. You had your chance and blew it. I won, and am moving on to other topics.
I didn't think we were having a contest. And I don't hide the fact I posted information from another link. I hate links, people don't read them. I agree with this information and it's a TV Man opinion. Nobody can win or lose when there's no contest. Substance is not determined from originality, it's determined through information. By the way the proper word is Gibberish (sometimes Jibberish), and one can tell you don't comprehend the meaning. If you could think with both sides of your brain you would understand my post had meaning.

           The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that a soldier, missing from the Vietnam War, has been accounted for and will be buried with full military honors along with two of his crew members.
           Army Spc. 5 John L. Burgess, of Sutton Bay, Mich., was the crew chief of a UH-1H Iroquois helicopter that crashed in Binh Phuoc Province, South Vietnam.  Also, killed in the crash were 1st Lt. Leslie F. Douglas Jr., of Verona, Miss.; lst Lt. Richard Dyer, of Central Falls, R.I.; and Sgt. 1st Class Juan Colon-Diaz, of Comerio, Puerto Rico. Another crew member, Pfc. John Goosman, survived the crash and was rescued.  Remains representing Dyer, Colon-Diaz, and Burgess, will be buried as a group in a single casket, on July 2, at Arlington National Cemetery.
           On June 30, 1970, while on a command and control mission, the helicopter was struck by enemy fire, causing it to crash. Shortly thereafter, friendly forces recovered remains of Douglas, Colon-Diaz, and Dyer.  The three men were individually identified and buried with full military honors.  At that time, no remains were attributed to Burgess.
           From 1992 to 2012, more than a dozen joint U.S./Socialist Republic of Vietnam (S.R.V.) teams investigated the case, in Binh Phuoc Province, recovering human remains, personal effects, military equipment, and aircraft wreckage associated with this loss.    
           Burgess was accounted for using forensic and circumstantial evidence.
