ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -- The bodies of two men killed in Vietnam are being buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

The remains of Maj. Howard V. Andre Jr. of Memphis, Tenn., and Maj. James E. Sizemore of Lawrenceville, Ill., will be buried Monday.

Sizemore and Andre were on a night reconnaissance mission during the Vietnam War when their A-26A Invader crashed on July 8, 1969, in Xiangkhoang Province, Laos. Both men's remains were unaccounted for until April.

Teams from the United States and Laos excavated the crash site, recovering personal effects and military equipment.
