The basis for the lecture will be the outline of a book currently being edited for publication entitled “Known But to God; America’s 20th Century Wars and the Search for the Missing”.
It will trace the history of accounting for and honoring the dead from World War I through WWII, Korea, the Cold War and Vietnam. Topics will include the role of the Quartermaster Corps in all Wars, and the foundation of the American Battle Monuments Commission. A central theme will be the continuing efforts to recover and identify the more than 75,000 still missing from World War II, and the development of the current actions of the Defense Missing Personnel Accounting Agency and the role of Ken Breaux’s organization, the MIA Recovery Network, a non-profit organization which acts as an advocacy group for families of the missing and researchers pursuing cases of missing in action soldiers.
