They were stationed in the Aleutian Islands, Coming home on leave, C47 plane from Anchorage Alaska to Fairbanks Alaska. Plane went down over Mt. Deception Alaska. One month later, No bodies recovered, only plane parts, WHY NO BODIES or DOG TAGS or UNIFORMS? 18 military servicemen and 1 civilian on plane. Still a lot of unanswered questions about this.
