U.S. identifies remains of missing Gulf War pilot Speicher

The Defense Department on Sunday said it's identified the remains of Capt. Michael Scott Speicher, a Navy pilot who has been missing since he was shot down on the first night of the Gulf War. The remains were found not far from where Speicher's plane crashed, putting to an end 18 years of uncertainty about whether he'd survived and been captured.
