Finally coming home

A local man's helicopter came under fire, and crashed against a hillside in Vietnam 40 years ago. Now finally, the remains have been identified, and Lance Cpl. Kurt La Plant is going to have a proper burial at Arlington Cemetery in Washington DC. His mother says it's hard going through all these emotions again, 40 years after she already grieved for her son. Especially because this process of identifying the remains has dragged on for more than a year. But she's also happy because this is all to honor him, and she knows he would have appreciated that.
