“Matt is coming home. He’s completed his mission"
his father, Keith Maupin, said.
Army Sgt. Keith Matthew Maupin had been listed as Missing-captured in Iraq since April 9, 2004, after his convoy was ambushed.
A week later the Al-Jazeera tv network aired a videotape showing Sgt Maupin sitting on the floor surrounded by masked men holding automatic weapons.
Then in June, another tape was aired that purported to show a U.S. soldier being murdered. The tape was dark and grainy, showing only the back of the victim's head.
Nearly four years after his capture, Sgt Maupin has been found in Iraq.
The U.S. Army notified the Maupin family that Matt had been identified through DNA.
Lest we forget: 3 U.S. soldiers remain listed as Missing-Captured.
