In Honor of Memorial Day, 2020 marks the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. As we remember our lost heroes, History Flight teams continue to resolve Missing In Action case files. During the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, the Department of Defense (DPAA) has identified 13 additional Tarawa MIAs. As we all strive to “flatten the curve”, we wish everyone a healthy and safe Memorial Day celebration. Due to Covid-19, the Memorial Day special was cancelled so we invite you to view the 2019 NBC Today Show Memorial Day piece about History Flight.
History Flight is a privately operated, 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization dedicated to researching, recovering and repatriating America’s servicemen, who have been listed as Missing In Action (MIA) during past American conflicts, back to US soil. Since 2003, History Flight missions have recovered the remains of over 130 missing servicemen, in both the European and Pacific theaters of war, and helped return them to their families. History Flight is responsible for the recovery of an additional 250 sets of remains; turned over to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) that are currently in the process of identification. History Flight utilizes a multi-faceted search and recovery approach coupled with a team of world class professionals with passion and dedication for the mission of finding our lost servicemen. Our results-driven methodology is unmatched and gives History Flight the honor of being the world’s most successful, private, MIA search and recovery organization.
Our organization has teams in the field, in numerous regions of the world, living up to America’s promise of “Never leaving a fallen comrade behind”. These dedicated individuals continue their tireless search today to maintain the 93% organizational success rate in finding America’s lost heroes and we could use your HELP. There are over 78,000 missing American servicemen around the world. Operations of this magnitude are only successful through the contributions of dedicated organizations and individuals who want to do their part to ensure that the heroes of our past conflicts, who have given the last full measure in order to secure the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today, are not forgotten.
