The Pentagon has admitted to NBC News that so-called "arrival ceremonies" for unidentified war remains didn’t actually involve any arriving remains, and in fact, the planes used often couldn't even fly — they were towed into position. NBC News says the ceremonies, which have been going on for six years, are known as "The Big Lie" among some military and civilian staff in Hawaii. Veterans and families of MIAs who have attended the events thought they were seeing the return of Americans killed in World War II, Vietnam and Korea.
Rick Stone, who once worked for the MIA/POW accounting command, called the ceremonies "an open fraud" that focuses more on public relations than actually finding and identifying missing warriors. [Source]
