The recovery and identification of Tom Teran -- last seen in the middle of a fierce firefight in the predawn hours of May 6, 1970 as Viet Cong forces overran the munitions dump he was guarding on Henderson Hill, Quang Tri Province -- brings the number of U.S. servicemen still missing in Southeast Asia to 1,932.
