POW/MIA recovery efforts in Vanuatu

Service members and civilians assigned to the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command take advantage of recent heavy rainfall to wet screen excavated soil during recovery operations in the Independent Republic of Vanuatu Sept. 3, 2012. Two specialized teams deployed from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, to excavate several ground and aircraft crash sites in search of Americans who remain unaccounted-for from World War II. 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.
