 The POW and MIA Issue
This page will be inactive for a spell.  I'll be back soon!!!
01/22/16: Hummelstown native Corporal Kenneth Stuck, missing in action since November 1950, is finally returning home to be with his family.  See PennLive article for more information.
Abandoned In Place Abandoned in Place is a very powerful and heart wrenching book. AiP is extremely well researched and written book about the abandonment of American troops from the war in Southeast Asia.  I highly recommend you get this book and take the time to, not just read, but study it.  Be forewarned, you will be moved!    http://www.abandonedinplaceblog.com

This Just In
There is a new book about the POW and MIA issue about to be published.
Abandoned In Place

'Abandoned in Place' provides a glimpse at events relating to the POW and MIA issue between 27 January 1973, when the Paris Peace Accords were signed and the recent disclosure of JPAC's POW/MIA repatriation ceremonies sham.  The crux of this book is "Operation Pocket Change", a little known story about the planned rescue of POWs held in Laos six years after the end of the Vietnam war.
