Incredible! Thankfully there are groups who haven't given up and are still active in the search. Hopefully someday, though maybe not in my life time, all will be accounted for. Likely a dream, but one I can hold on to for the remainder of my days.

I totally agree with you Danny. Considering that they are still working on finding those guys from 70+ years ago, to find those from our day, would make it unlikely they will be found in our lifetime.

I can share with you that there is a component of the DAV that is still actively working on the MIA portion.

SO thankful to you, Keith, and those like you who work hard every day to provide help to our "wounded." Without that assistance trying to navigate a huge system would be too daunting for many. I salute you all! Mass respect, my brother!

My trying to help veterans through the government maze at the VA is no more important than your service to your community as a peace officer.
