'To Educate the Public'

As Advocates for those that are being/have been held as Prisoners of War (POW) and for those who carry the master classification Missing in Action (MIA) next to their name, our job is "to educate the public". To do that effectively and efficiently we must make sure that we are knowledgeable on all aspects of the POW/MIA topic.  

Please - open the link above - there is enough documented information on this site that you could create a college course that would fill a semester at least on the topic of COLD WAR and Korean War POW/MIAs.

Pass this link on to all your advocate friends as well as your Veteran friends and when you have confidence with your knowledge on the topic, send it on to your elected representative - State & Federal - let them know that contrary to popular/their opinion - you and your fellow advocates have NOT Forgotten those left behind in Korea and other communist countries.

Someone must stand for those that are not able to stand for themselves – let that someone be you.

Until they all come home……….

An Enormous Crime: The Definitive Account of American POWs
Abandoned in Southeast Asia
, by Bill Hendon and Elizabeth A. Stewart

(Thomas Dunne Books, St. Martin’s Press)

In the Twentieth Century the United States fought three wars in Asia: World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. In all three, thousands of Americans were captured and became prisoners.

The fate of live American POWs in World War II was comparatively easy to establish, because the Japanese were vanquished, they surrendered unconditionally, and virtually all the territory they had occupied came under American or allied control. After the surrender, there were few, if any, places the Japanese could hide live American prisoners of war, nor any reason they would want to.

Not so in North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union....
