SYNOPSIS: In a war with millions of U.S. participants, clerical and other
errors in records are inevitable. Perhaps clerical error can explain the
case of Captain Barry K. Allmond.

Allmond, an Air Force Captain, was reported missing in South Vietnam on May
11, 1972. The Department of Defense maintained him in Prisoner of War status
from at least July 1972 until October 1973, but declined to discuss his case
at that time with interested POW/MIA accountability groups.

By 1978, Allmond's name had disappeared off all U.S. Government lists
without public explanation. In 1991, Allmond's name appears on the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial without POW/MIA designation.
