Searching and recovering the fallen soldiers of WW2 is done of respect for the soldier who lost his life, so he can have a real grave, hopefully a named one so also remaining family members can have a closure. Since I am new to the group I haven`t had a chance to attend the reburials yet, but hope to do so this spring. Edgars and Viktors from Legenda lent me these pics so I could put them up here and show you some of what happens after we have found a fallen.
Some days ago +/- 300 German soldiers was put to rest on a cemetary outside Saldus in Latvia.
From reburial of Red Army soldiers in Riga in april. Legenda guys behind the soldiers coffins.
Red Army veteran. He fought from Leningrad all the way to Kurland.
