    I don't know if this belongs here or in the PI thread (Admins, please move if this thread does not belong here).

    Apparently there are over 200 USSR soldiers missing from the USSR invasion of Afghanistan in the 1970s. I wonder how many missing soldiers (from any country) actually settle down where they were fighting a war? My guess is not many.
