Guest: Timothy McMahon, Director of DNA Operations, Department of Defense Americans are gathering at gravesites to honor those who died in military service to the country. But some servicemembers who made that ultimate sacrifice have never come home to be properly buried and mourned by their families. The Department of Defense has an entire office dedicated to bringing that closure to families using DNA analysis. The office has identified the remains of servicemembers missing in action all the way back to World War II. (Originally aired 1/16/2020)
