Members of the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard and airport workers remote the flag-draped casket containing the remains of one of two unknown sailors who were lost when the USS Monitor, the nation's first ironclad warship, sank Dec. 31, 1862, in a storm off Cape Hatteras, N.C., from a Delta MD-88 aircraft, at Dulles International Airport in Chantilly, Va., Thursday, March 7, 2013, during a dignified transfer ceremony. The remains were transported from Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) in Hawaii, where they underwent identification attempts, before Friday's burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
