AMERICANS IDENTIFIED:   There are now 1,619 Americans listed by the Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) as missing and unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War.  06/2016

 

http://www.dpaa.mil/OurMissing/PastConflicts.aspx

DPAA, 03/28/2016:   The former number was based upon the DPMO dataset that had always been used as the published number.  This number was based upon three discrete datasets;  the U.S. Army Rosters of the Dead (All Services), The American Battle Monuments Commission List of the Missing, Memorialization Roster, and the Office of the Quartermaster General Memorial Division's Roster of Military Personnel Whose Remains were not Recovered.  As the new agency was formed we have engaged on a year and half long project to consolidate the data held by the accounting community.  Drawing upon 19 primary source lists and primary individual records; we have updated newly established identifications, eliminated duplicative records, erroneous entries, and information that demonstrates the individual was properly accounted for by the appropriate authorities before our Agency inherited those responsibilities.  The most significant changes are within the WWII data.  However, these corrections are less than half of one percent of the total list.

 Reflects actual number still unaccounted-for. PMKOR database count is slightly higher due to several entries pending administrative review. 

* Due to limited or conflicting data concerning location of loss for approximately 1% of WWII missing, the above map does not show a total number equal to the list of WWII missing by name elsewhere on this site. As the data from our predecessor organizations is merged and validated all publicly available information will be promptly updated.
