In this historic image provided by the Denver Public Library, an American amphibious vehicle crosses an Italian lake during World War II. A volunteer group’s discovery of what could be the wreckage of such a vehicle 900 feet below the surface of Italy's Lake Garda has given aging veterans hope that, after nearly seven decades, the remains of their comrades can finally be brought home for a proper burial.
