Faith and Trust ..... 
We must never Forget

Welcome to the
Northeast POW/MIA Network

By Don Amorisi posted February 15, 2018

It has come to my attention that many family members, veterans and others who support us have questions about the POW/MIA issue. Little to none of it ever reachs the main stream media. I can assure you that the facts we present are real. 

Stop by and read the articles that will be posted. Then decide for yourself ~ did our country and those who promised to bring our family and friends home do the honorable thing or did they do what THEY needed to do to sweep the dirt under the carpet? We demand answers to these and other questions.

Don Amorosi, President

Northeast POW/MIA Network

Missing/Captured vs. POW - the term Prisoner of War or POW is no longer valid. Well....
There's a problem with the terminology...We continued to express our concern over the expected discontinuation of the POW status. Learn more by visiting the Terminology page
STATUS OF THE ISSUE
February 26, 2018 ​ 
1,600 Americans are now listed by DoD as missing and unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War: Vietnam - 1,253 (VN-458, VS-795); Laos–292; Cambodia-48; Peoples Republic of China territorial waters–7. (These numbers fluctuate due to investigations resulting in changed locations of loss.) The League seeks the fullest possible accounting for those still missing and repatriation of all recoverable remains. Highest priority is accounting for Americans last known alive. US intelligence indicates some Americans known to be in captivity in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were not returned at the end of the war. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, it must be assumed that these Americans could still be alive, and the US Government should not rule out that possibility.

CONGRESSIONAL ACTIONS


Write, call, or email congress urging bipartisan support for US priority on accounting for America’s unreturned veterans.
