My Dad is finally coming home after 54 years.

Thank you everyone for your support and prayers. It is amazing after all this time my family finally got the call that USAF Pilot Ernest DeSoto's remains have been recovered. It has been a long and painful journey. We are working with the military putting together a funeral with full honors. His remains will be flying in from Pearl Harbor in less that two weeks now. It was special to see all the messages posted here, and they are most appreciated. Thank you for all the prayers. He is finally coming home to rest where he belongs. Brad
