  • A joint service honor guard presents the colors during the U.S. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command Arrival Ceremony, at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Nov. 30, 2012, to honor fallen U.S. personnel whose identities remain unknown. An honor detail comprised of joint military members escorted four flag-draped transfer cases from a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III to JPAC’s Central Identification Laboratory for analyses. The remains receiving full military honors represent losses associated with World War II and the Vietnam War are from recent JPAC recovery missions in Kiribati, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Germany, Belgium, France, Canada and Vietnam. Once the transfer cases arrive at JPAC’s laboratory, the forensic process of identifying the individuals will begin. If and when identifications are established, the names will be announced following next-of-kin notification. (Department of Defense photo by U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Michael R. Holzworth)
