POW/MIA
 







 

        

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 




 

The VFW will not rest until we receive the fullest possible accounting of all missing American military service members from all years.  The numbers of unaccounted-for-personnel are staggering and the length of time since they have been lost is extensive.  Many will never be recovered because the loss occurred over deepwater or the eye witness to an incident has past away.  We believe that many of the answers to questions about the missing are still held by our former enemies, both individuals and nations.  The VFW encourages the U. S. government to continue its missing personnel accounting efforts, and is directly engaged with former enemy nations urging their fullest cooperation and assistance in obtaining information about America POW/MIAs.  VFW national officers make periodic trips to the Pacific, Asian and European countries where they always meet with senior host country officials to stress the importance of conducting investigation and recovery operations, as well as gaining access to documents and archival research facilities.  The U. S. President and American people view this issue as a high national priority, and the VFW is working hard to help families find their loved ones, ease their burden and bring closure to the issue of the missing.

It is important for the House of Representatives to have jurisdictional oversight and full investigative powers of all unresolved POW/MIA matters so no stone is unturned and all avenues have been exhausted to recover America's missing.  Therefore, the VFW urges the creation of a House Select Committee on POW & MIA Affairs.
