On November 22, 1952, 52 American soldiers departed on a C-124 Globemaster plane heading for Anchorage, Alaska. They never
made it to their destination. When a rescue was deemed too expensive by the military, these men were left to the Alaskan wilderness
and found their untimely demise. 60 years later, their true fate was still unknown, until Tonja Anderson-Dell fought the government
for 15 years to bring them home and give them a proper burial. Find out more here: www.honoredbound.org
