Hard Work Continues

4 Oct 2005

For many Americans, the POW/MIA symbol is closely associated with the war in Vietnam and rightfully so. However, a recent group of military professionals (part of the POW/MIA Accounting Command) spent serveral months in Europe searching for several of the remaining 78,000 missing servicemen from World War II.

Team member Marine Sgt. Thaddeus Land said ā€œ[i]f Iā€™m on foreign soil and get killed, I know my brothers will come back someday to get me.ā€

To learn more the POW/MIA Accounting Command's efforts, see this recent Stars and Stripes article.
