Like this:

His name was Lt. Kenneth W. Ambrose.

For more than 60 years, he has been lost and forgotten in the vast, often snowbound wilds of Mount Baker.

Read the story.

No kidding. I love the detail about the mysteriously returned trumpet & his jazz affixation.

I have an uncle lost in Malaya in 1942, my father's younger brother. At every family gathering - weddings, birthdays, whatever; the beer flows, the jokes start and the songs commence, and when Danny Boy is sung the laughter turns to tears all round.

His name was Daniel. Today he would almost be an octogenarian.

Lets hope they find his remains so he can have a proper and deserved burial.
