M.I.A. Colonel returns to Florida from Vietnam

Jim Stewart, oldest son of U.S. Air Force Col. Peter Stewart, an F-4C Phantom II aircraft pilot during the Vietnam War, hugs an American flag presented to him during a military honors service at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in Winter Haven, Fla., June 18, 2018. Stewart was 16 when his dad volunteered to take another pilot’s place on a reconnaissance mission over Vietnam. His father’s aircraft was shot down in 1966 and was declared missing in action until his remains were recovered during an excavation in April 2018 by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.
