POW/MIA recovery efforts in Vanuatu

U.S. Army Sgt. Andrew Parker, a combat engineer assigned to the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, talks to a local villager as they construct a shelter that will be used for a base camp during recovery operations in the Independent Republic of Vanuatu Aug. 21, 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.
