The flag-draped casket containing the remains of New Bremen native Mark Dennis, who was shot down in a helicopter in Vietnam, is returned to members of his family on April 4 at Tampa International Airport. Dennis and his family spent their early years in New Bremen before moving to Miamisburg. Meeting the casket are sisters Eileen Brady, 80, of Largo, Florida, back right, and Anne Moline, 74, of Arvada, Colorado, back left, and members of the Patriot Guard. The family had maintained for years that the remains were not Dennis', but recent DNA testing concluded they did belong to Dennis, a Navy corpsman third class who was killed in action in July 1966.
