The Lost American


Episode Info

"As I write, the battle - and more important, the war - is far from over. But if people are in need and they're under fire, you've got to go where the people and the needs are. Risk comes with the territory." Torn from the pages of Fred Cunys' personal diary, this final quote was to be the last entry in the saga known as "The Lost American." Brought to video by PBS, Frontline: The Lost American highlights the life and death of perhaps America's greatest humanitarian, Fred Cunys. Even without his remains, all evidence points to his demise in the war-torn countryside of Chechnya.
