Summer, 2019

​Some very good news coming out of the DPAA, the agency responsible for recovery and identification of our loved ones who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The Punchbowl Memorial in Hawaii, where more than 800 unidentified remains from the Korean War have laid, waiting to be reunited with their families, has begun the process  to disinter every single set of Unknown remains and perform more advanced DNA and scientific techniques in an effort to keep that promise to leave no man behind. We are grateful to those in the positions of power that enabled these new efforts.
