Dignified arrival
An Air Force honor guard team transfers the remains of Staff Sgt. Robert Dale Van Fossen, of Greenbrier, Ark., May 25, 2017, at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport. Van Fossen died Nov. 22, 1952, when a Douglas C-124A-DL Globemaster II went down. The aircraft took off from McChord Air Base in Tacoma, Wash., headed for Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage, Ala., with a crew of 11. Van Fossen was one of 41 passengers aboard the aircraft. Prior to enlisting in the Air Force in 1949, Van Fossen served in the Arkansas Army National Guard from 1947 through 1949. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Jeremy McGuffin)
