Lao and U.S. team members supporting the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command's recovery mission screen dirt from a remote mountainous site. The approximately 35-day deployment marks the 120th Joint Field Activity in Laos. The ultimate goal of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, and of the agencies involved in returning America’s heroes home, is to achieve the fullest possible accounting of Americans lost during the nation’s past conflicts.
