Gifts from a Glacier: The Quest for an American Flag and 52 Souls Paperback

Description

On November 22, 1952, 52 American soldiers departed on a C-124 Globemaster plane heading for Anchorage, Alaska. They never made it to their destination. When a rescue was deemed too expensive by the military, these men were left to the Alaskan wilderness and found their untimely demise. 60 years later, their true fate was still unknown to their loved ones and the world.
Instead of living with this uncertainty, Tonja Anderson-Dell decides to take on the government to learn the secret of this disaster and return the bodies of the passengers from the C-124 Globemaster. Tragedy, deception and the courage to overcome adversity shape an adventure with the purpose of bringing closure to the families of those whose lives were lost.
