Read about the The Bent Prop Project They search the waters and jungles of the western Pacific, in what they hope are intelligent ways, for clues that may lead to the location & identification of wreck sites & remains of men who gave their lives in defense of America. They work closely with The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) "Until They Are Home" - JPAC's mission is to achieve the fullest possible accounting of all Americans missing as a result of our nation's previous conflicts.
