After 66 years, granddaughter's searching brings military remains home
Tonja Anderson-Dell sat patiently in the cell phone waiting lot at Tampa International Airport. Her eyes rarely left the clouds.
Her grandfather was finally coming home.
“I feel like I’m going to jump out of my skin,” she said.
Since 1999, Tonja has been searching for her grandfather, Issac William Anderson. He was one of 52 servicemen killed when a military plane crashed while en route to Anchorage, AK in a 1952 snowstorm.
