On May 17, 1946 a C-47B cargo plane took off from Rangoon carrying the remains of Almand and approximately forty other service men who died as prisoners of war. They were to be returned to the United States, however the plane crashed in a storm in India, killing the three man crew as well as the eight passengers from the American Graves Registration Service. The wreckage was discovered by Clayton Kuhles in 2009, and efforts are being made to return the remains to the US.
