    Relatives of Argentine squad fallen during Falklands War return from humanitarian trip

    The Alacran squad's Puma helicopter was shot down at Mount Kent in 1982 but the bodies were not identified until 2021

    Relatives of Argentine combatants of the Alacran squad fallen in the 1982 South Atlantic conflict returned Saturday after visiting the graves of their loved ones following the Second Humanitarian Project Plan (PPH2) agreed with the United Kingdom and the International Committee of the Red Cross work which gave proper names to what was previously labeled under the generic “soldiers known only to God.”
