The Coalition of Families of Korean and Cold War POW/MIAs pursues answers to the fate of over 7000 American soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors still missing-in-action from the Korean and Cold Wars. We are the families of the missing men … brothers, sisters, wives, children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. We assist each other in our individual searches, while helping to shape the nature and scope of the mission overall.
This website is designed to broaden awareness of the mission's issues. Background information to both conflicts is found under The Korean & Cold Wars tab. Sightings of Americans held after the war, along with other distinctive aspects of the mission, are found under the The Issues tab. Please visit the initial tab pages of each heading for a general overview.
The website also offers opportunities for you to support our mission. The Projects pages address a range of issues; among them, the identification of unknown American soldiers from the Korean War who have been buried on American soil for over sixty years. The Media tab recommends books and films that deepen understanding of both wars. All proceeds from the purchase of the award winning Finnigan’s War go to the Coalition. Join with us as members, or associate members (non-families), under the About Us tab.
We invite you to explore our website, learn about the issues, and play a role in moving the mission forward. We are not alone in this journey if you are there with us.

The Bring Our Heroes Home Act has been introduced to the U.S. Senate.

The BOHHA is a bipartisan bill authored by Senator Crapo and Senator Shaheen, with input from the Coalition of Families of Korean & Cold War POW/MIAs.
