#BIGPICTURE: Members of US Navy salute casket of Julius Piper


74 years ago Julius Piper and his twin brother Ludwig were killed in World War II -- on their way to fight on the beaches of Normandy. Back then, only Ludwig was identified -- his brother Julius marked as an unknown soldier. Now for the first time since that day, the brothers are reunited. Julius finally identified after all of these years, laid to rest next to his twin at the Normandy American Cemetery. Photograph courtesy of Virginia Mayo for the AP.
