A joint honor detail carries a flag-draped transfer case from a C-17 to a bus during a Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command arrival ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. The transfer cases, which represent losses from the Vietnam War, arrived at the JPAC's Central Identification Laboratory for forensic analysis. The ultimate goal of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, and of the agencies involved in returning America's heroes home, is to achieve the fullest possible accounting of Americans.
