Independent filmmaker Steven Barber's documentary about Cooper's visit, "Return to Tarawa: The Leon Cooper Story," narrated by actor Ed Harris, was a hit on the Military Channel and led to appearances for Cooper and Barber on ABC's "World News," CBS with Katie Couric, and CNN with Larry King. It led to an amendment written into the House version of the U.S. defense authorization bill in 2009 calling on the Pentagon "to undertake all feasible efforts to recover, identify and return" the missing remains of 564 U.S. service members killed in the Battle of Tarawa. And on Thursday, it led to a team from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, based in Hawaii, getting on a C-17 cargo aircraft for a recovery mission to Betio Island, where Barber is now filming the sequel.
