Remains Of Airman Return To Indiana

Six-decades after he was killed in a plane crash in Alaska, the body of airman Howard Martin is back home in Indiana.

Martin was one of 52 people on a C-124 Globemaster when it slammed into a glacier while flying from an Air Force base in Seattle to one in Anchorage.

The wreckage was found in 2012 and yesterday, his remains were returned home with full military honors.

Martin will be laid to rest Saturday in Elwood.
