MIA Veteran honored 70 years later

February 19, 2013

In 1943, Air Corp 2nd Lt. William W. Bartlett was killed in action when his bomber was shot down over Austria while returning from its first mission. Bartlett, the plane’s navigator, and the rest of his crew, were considered missing in action (MIA). Their bodies were never recovered.
