Airman Returned to U.S.

A member of the U.S. Air Force carry team stands near a flag-draped transfer case holding the remains of Air Force Staff Sgt. Phillip Meyers of Hopewell, Va. during an arrival ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Dover, Delaware. Staff Sgt. Phillip Meyers was killed on April 4 by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. A new policy that overturns an 18-year ban on news coverage of returning war dead allowed the media to cover Meyers' return. The policy gives families the choice on whether to admit the media.
