It's been four years since Randall Hester last heard from his older brother, Ron, a Navy veteran his family called a lone wolf. He had no idea Ron had died in January 2009 until relatives saw the man's name in a newspaper along with 15 other veterans whose bodies were unclaimed. On Monday, Hester prepared for a final goodbye, gripping an urn containing his brother's ashes and heading off to the Manti-La Sal National Forest.

It's troubling and tragic that no one knew. A shame that there isn't a national registry that helps bring the deceased together with their long lost relatives. No one should be forgotten or unclaimed.
