BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: There is a disturbing story tonight at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware . This is a tough one because it's the place we've all become familiar with, where the remains of Americans killed in battle are first returned home. Three Air Force officials have been reprimanded after the loss and mishandling of body parts of dead service members. And in an apparent attempt to cover it up, two whistle-blowers were fired. The US Office of Special Counsel found evidence of gross mismanagement, dishonesty and misconduct among the three top leaders at the Dover mortuary. As of tonight, no one has been relieved of their duties.
