Almost seven decades after he died in World War II, the remains of Staff Sgt. Meceslaus T. Miaskiewicz are being returned from Bosnia to relatives in Massachusetts. Wrapped in a U.S. flag, his coffin was loaded Tuesday at the Sarajevo airport onto a U.S. C-130.
Miaskiewicz was with the 347th Bomb Squadron. His remains were thought to have been collected along with those of seven other crew members of a B-17 that crashed in 1944 while returning to Italy from a mission in Romania.
