In this seven-part series for the CBS Evening News, Eric Enberg and Vince Gonzales broke the story that the Vietnam war hero buried at Arlington National Cemetery was anything but an unknown soldier. The investigative team pursued two strands of this story: evidence that forensic scientists are now able to use DNA samples to identify virtually any soldier’s remains as well as evidence that the Pentagon deliberately obscured forensic reports so that they could enshrine an unknown soldier from the Vietnam War. After 26 years, these reports brought the remains of Sgt. Michael Blassie back to his family.
