Northern Italy: Melting Glaciers Reveal Corpses of WW1 Soldiers

A remarkable discovery in Northern Italy was reported in the British newspaper “The Telegraph“.  The macabre scene is of the bodies of World War I soldiers who died near Peio, once the highest village in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Read the story at this link:  The Telegraph.  If the remains could ever be identified, imagine the impact to the families.  Not knowing what happened to your brother, father or son for what amounts to the rest of your life is tragic from anyone’s perspective. Imagine getting THAT call! At the very least, it will allow those families….if they’re still around…to “close the book” on that part of their families.
