POW/MIA ACCOUNTING UPDATE FINAL REPORT FOR 2015

Jan 2, 2016

This has been a banner year for the new Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. although they did not reach the 215 goal that they wanted to reach this year they did recovery and accounted for a grand total of 103 for the year. This was an increase of 34 from last year at this time. They still have the "Punch Bowl Project" with 388 remains to work with and the 31 from Tarwara Island project to work on, but those numbers will count toward the 2016 accounting period. So listed below are the final totals for 2015 and from the POW/MIA Honor Guard Team of the American Legion , Dept of Georgia we wish all of you a Happy New Year.
