Maj. Troy Gilbert is carried by caisson during his final interment at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Dec. 19, 2016. Gilbert was killed Nov. 27, 2006, while flying a mission in direct support of coalition ground combat operations when his F-16C Fighting Falcon crashed approximately 20 miles northwest of Baghdad. This was the third interment for the Airman at Arlington since 2006, and reunited remains recovered this year with partial remains originally recovered in 2006 and 2012.

Long rows of white marble headstones line the landscape of Arlington National Cemetery, each memorializing a fallen U.S. military member with a unique story of service to the nation. Nestled within Section 60 of the sprawling cemetery lies a marker for Air Force Maj. Troy Gilbert, an American Airman whose story and long journey home to his final resting place is an unusual one – and one which for nearly a decade lacked an ending since most of Gilbert’s remains had been missing and unrecovered somewhere in Iraq until this October.
