Chief Warrant Officer, Andy Howes, returns to Knox today 41 years after being killed in action during the Vietnam War.
His remains were positively identified by a DNA match with family members.
He is the final member of a four-man helicopter crew to be returned for burial. After services here tomorrow, the remains will be flown to Arlington National Cemetery to his final resting place.
Over 500 motorcycles and numerous state, county and local police were in the procession.
May he rest in peace...finally.

A beautiful tribute to a lost soldier. I am from an army family, and I always appreciate seeing these posts. Beautiful work- thanks for sharing. Welcome Home.
I salute you, soldier, from Flanders, Belgium, Europe. My fiancee was a Sergeant in the Air Force in the United States. I myself was training in the RAF about the time you were in Vietnam, as a rookie. I just want you to know that while we didn't seem to appreciate what the US did just then, we do now, in hindsight, thinking it had to be done at the time. I have friends whose family members died in Vietnam. It brings tears to my eyes.
