COLONY GLACIER, Alaska -- A Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) recovery
team works at the site where military aircraft wreckage was found on Colony
Glacier, Alaska. The surface was marked with deep crevasses so the team took
numerous safety precautions to mitigate the risk. 

The five-man teaminitially went out to investigate the area, but deteriorating conditions on
the glacier caused the team to transition into recovery mode to ensure the
most amount of evidence could be recovered for further analysis at JPAC's
Central Identification Laboratory. (U.S. Army Photo by CPT Jamie D. Dobson)
