Were American P.O.W.s Taken to the U.S.S.R. During the Korean War?
Over the years, questions about men who were reportedly left behind after the Korean and Cold Wars have haunted families who continue to search for their missing loved ones. This is particularly true when it comes to men who disappeared without an adequate explanation or under questionable circumstances.
The Coalition has reviewed much of the evidence: live sighting reports, interagency and White House memos, transcripts of congressional hearings, a multitude of studies. We will delve into specific sightings, reports and other evidence that speak to the assertion that men were held back. We will discuss what has been done, what hasn’t been done and what needs to be done to get to the bottom of this complicated issue.
Our intent is not to cast blame or to divide the accounting community. It is to find a cohesive approach to addressing and, hopefully, resolving this most disturbing aspect of the POW/MIA issue.
