CBS News reports:

The Department of Defense has positively identified the remains of a U.S. Navy pilot shot down over Iraq in the opening hours of the 1991 Gulf War.

CBS News Pentagon correspondent David Martin reports that remains found in Iraq have been confirmed to be that of Captain Michael “Scott” Speicher, who disappeared on January 17, 1991 when his F-18 went down in Al Anbar province.

An American team dug up the remains, which consisted of numerous skeletal fragments.

The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology made a positive identification based on teeth in the jawbone which positively matched Speicher’s dental records, both visually and spectrographically.

DNA testing is not complete, but the identification is considered positive, reports Martin.

R.I.P. We never forgot. We’ll never forget.
