Mark V Dennis and his noble family: victims of war and of bad media

Mark V Dennis and his noble family: victims of war and of bad media
The Mark V. Dennis case is a heartbreaking example of the sacrifices of war and the devastating impact to family. The case is potentially an example of misidentification of remains during the confusion of war, and certainly a case of sloppy reporting involving a photo of an "unidentified" POW, once believed by the Dennis family to be Mark, that was published in Newsweek magazine in 1970. Life Magazine had identified the POW as Lt. Paul E. Galanti in 1967. These elements would tragically combine to send Mark’s family through a heartbreaking search for the truth over the following 50 years.

The Mark V. Dennis case forces us to wonder how many American families may have buried misidentified remains from the Vietnam War and should be a lesson to journalists about the importance of fact checking rather than going with an assumption.

Such is the cruelty of war. Such is the sacrifice of HM3 Mark V. Dennis and his patriotic family.
