Hardworking local Vietnamese villagers assist Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command team members with wet-screening stream bed sediment, a vital part of JPAC's recovery process, in Binh Dinh province, Vietnam, March 13, 2012. JPAC's mission is to conduct 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.
