U.S. Air Force Airman Second Class Edward J. Miller was lost to the world on Nov. 22, 1952, when a Douglas C-124 Globemaster troop transport plane he was on with 51 other military men between Tacoma, Washington, and Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage, Alaska, lost its navigation coming in over mountains in a blinding, Alaskan blizzard. As far as U.S. Air Force investigators could surmise, the big-bellied Globemaster plane crashed into the side of the jagged, 9,600-foot Mount Gannett, a barren, glaciated peak in the frozen Chugach Mountains about 45 miles east of Anchorage. Miller’s remains were unearthed during three different summertime search-and-recovery missions between 2012 and 2019. His remains were returned home to Evansville with an honorary escort on July 16. The motorcade traveled through Milton on County Highway M.
