Remains of WWII vet being repatriated from Bosnia

STUTTGART, Germany — For 67 years, the only people who knew about the presence of the American were the residents of the village in western Bosnia-Herzegovina where he was buried.
In 1944, a resident of the hamlet of Stubica buried Staff Sgt. Meceslaus T. Miaskiewicz, a Massachusetts native who was shot down over the former Yugoslavia, according to U.S. military officials who interviewed local residents.  http://www.stripes.com/news/remains-of-wwii-vet-being-repatriated-from-bosnia-1.156184
