Touch The Wall Fingers touching James W Herrick Jr's name on the Wall


Since our total pull-out of the Southeast Asia region, we have had the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (formerly known as the Joint Task Force) in the region with the sole goal to bring "our boys home." There have been the repatriation (remains returned to the United States) of approximately 700 plus remains since 1975. These repatriations are not without their disappointments and controversities. These are the Missing in Action (MIA) who whether agreed upon the identification or not, were recently "Welcomed Home."

These are the veterans who were returned, identified their remains and reported to their family.
