Abstract:

The United States expends great effort to account for members of the Armed Forces who were lost while serving the Nation. No other country has done as much. The Department of Defense is responsible for personnel recovery and accounting. Today, the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) develops and oversees national policies that facilitate this overall endeavor. In the aftermath of the Vietnam War, various commissions pursued information on the fate of missing service members. In 1991, the Senate established the Select Committee on Prisoner of War/Missing in Action (POW/MIA) Affairs, which thoroughly investigated the issue, including government attempts to resolve it. One committee recommended a single DoD office to oversee all matters relating to captive and missing Americans. DPMO was initiated by DoD Directive 5110.10 on July 16, 1993, under the authority of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. This achieved centralized management of POW/MIA affairs within DoD. DPMO provides departmental participation in negotiations with foreign governments to achieve maximum accounting of missing service members; assembles and analyzes information and maintains data bases on military and civilian personnel who are, or were, prisoners of war or missing in action; declassifies documents for disclosure and release according to public law and executive orders; and maintains channels of communication among Pentagon officials, members of Congress, POW/MIA families, and veterans organizations. DPMO's operational partners include the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Joint Task Force-Full Accounting activity, U.S. Army Central Identification Laboratory, Armed Forces Repository of Specimen Samples for the Identification of Remains, and Service casualty offices. These partners help DPMO with four broad activities: investigation, recovery, identification, and notification. (5 photographs).
