The remains of severely burned bodies of U.S. Marines are pictured amidst the wreckage of U.S. aircraft, including helicopters and giant transporters, after an abortive Commando-style raid into Iran aimed at freeing hostages being held at the U.S. Embassy. The desert site is in Eastern Iran at Desht-E-Kavir, some 500 kilometers from Tehran. At least eight U.S. servicemen died in the mission on April 24, 1980. (AP Photo)
