By The Numbers

Missing Americans

There are 1,642 Americans still listed as missing or unaccounted for from the Vietnam War, according to the National League of POW/MIA Families.

The national group calls for more scientists and more reliable funding to properly document the war dead. The possibility of prisoners of war from that era should not be ruled out, the group said. Joint excavation teams from Vietnam and the United States began working together in 1985. Logistics have complicated recent search efforts in Laos, the group said.
