"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The remains of four US Airmen lost in WWII are coming home after being found in Tibet.

The airmen, who have not been conclusively identified, crashed into a meadow 15,650 feet high on a mountain near the Tibetan village of Langko in March 1944, according to searchers from the U.S. Army's Central Identification Laboratory in Hawaii. All four died on impact, the military says.

That C-46 was one of more than 500 U.S. planes believed to have crashed over the Himalayan mountains during World War II. More than 1,000 U.S. airmen are believed to have perished in such crashes along what became known as the ``Aluminum Trail'' for its many lost planes.
