The scourge of every war has been service personnel that are missing in action or have not been accounted for as prisoners of war, and sadly, there is no definite closure for the loved ones, friends and comrades in arms of those for whom there has never been an accounting.

With the more recent Korean and Vietnam wars there has been a greater awareness and a more personal involvement in the effort of full accountability of missing American military personnel. It is therefore the sacred purpose of this memorial to honor those individuals that have given their lives while serving their country in time of war and have not been returned.
