James Rila, with the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, excavates a rock with the help of a local worker in Thua Thien-Hue province, Vietnam, while searching for evidence of two Americans listed as missing in action during the Vietnam War. In total, six recovery teams are excavating four separate aircraft crash sites and two ground loss sites, searching for evidence of 12 Americans unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War. The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command conducts global search, recovery and laboratory operations to identify unaccounted-for Americans from past conflicts in order to support the Department of Defense's personnel accounting efforts.
