More than 400 American soldiers are missing in air crashes flying the supply line crossing the Himalayas, nicknamed "The Hump" between India and China after Japanese forces invaded Burma cutting off the only overland resupply route for Chiang kai-shek's China Nationalists forces in holed up in Sichuan province. the rest of the story from Live Leak.We're glad to see 2 more of our fallen brothers coming home after all this time, and hope to see more of them coming back soon.
