There have been over 88,000 Americans who have been declared missing in action since the start of World War II, as well as many prisoners of war during the world's conflicts that the United States has been involved in. Being declared MIA can mean a lifetime of uncertainty for the families of the missing loved one.
No One Left Behind
A U.S. military unit was created in 1973 known as the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) who is responsible for recovering and identifying those missing American service men and women. They travel the world looking for MIAs by searching deserts, snake-infested jungles or scaling remote mountain ranges, all in search of a MIA person. The ultimate goal is to leave no one behind or forgotten.
