POW/MIA recovery efforts in Vanuatu

Dr. Nicholas Passalacqua, a forensic anthropologist and recovery leader with the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, excavates a grid unit with the assistance of Ms. Kelley Esh on a remote mountain site in the Independent Republic of Vanuatu Aug. 30, 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.
