Please view this Ceremony that services use to honor the missing and the fallen.
All those who fought and served their country when they received
the call, were men and women of courage, judgment, integrity and
dedication. Where does dedication end? You can never put an end to
dedication. After all, those who remain Prisoners of War or are still
Missing in Action are still serving with never ending dedication. For
them, it can never be over. For us, we can never let their sacrifices,
or them, be forgotten.
At the end of 2019 the Defense POW/MIA Accounting agency lists almost 82,000 Americans who remain missing from WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War and the Gulf Wars and other conflicts. Approximately 75% of these are missing in the Indo-Pacific area and over 41,000 are presumed lost at sea.
