Missing in America Project is the #1 priority established in honoring our lost veterans on mortuary shelves throughout the United States of America. This MIAP gives honors to those veterans whom were never remembered, mostly were foresaken and lost because knowone cared that they even existed. I encourage each American to get involved either by participating and paying your respects for these veterans in a ceremony or just giving support in anyway you can. Thank you MIAP members for doing Gods works. My family salutes you all and is forever grateful for how just one person can make a difference, one organization can make a difference, and that is Major Fred Salanti the Founder of the MIAP. This should encourage us all to know leadership still exists within our country as Major Fred Salanti says, "This Is The Right Thing To Do."

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the unity, the leadership, the dedication for doing the right thing and that is to give a final resting place with honors at a veterans cemetery.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated veterans and just everyday ordinary "American Citizens" whom deeply care to give and pay their respects for their services, their duties, and their sacrifice for our freedoms we have inderited living our Constitution of the United States of Amer

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

finalize the mission of MIAP, that there is no longer any veteran on a shelf in a mortuary unclaimed, not recognized, not honored in American tradition, finding a final resting place.

I have been involved in several MIAP services. MIAP provides an invaluable service bringing abandoned remains to their final resting place. Without the intervention of MIAP these servicemembers would likely remain unnamed and abandoned on back room shelves and in sheds across the county. Their services are well planned and supported by the community, they reflect great honor and respect upon the Warriors being interred.

Being involved in several Veteran support organization, I have found the Missing In America Project to be the most dedicated group of volunteers anywhere. The hours that are spent finding, processing and burying these forgotten American Heroes is staggering. The time and effort spent discussing and getting laws passed to support the MIAP's mission and get the Veterans their deserving end is overwhelming at times. The staff of the MIAP needs all the financial help and support they can get.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try and find more volunteers and organizations to support the mission.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the satisfaction of seeing these American Heroes layed to rest with honor and dignity.,

fantastic and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

lack of funding and archaic laws that slow the process of getting the Veterans buried.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The MIAP is slowly making headway and needs all the financial and physical support it can muster.

I am writing to compliment our local MIAP group here in Redding, California and to include Northern California. This group is under leadership and direction of a very dedicated person, Fred Salanti. He never seems to tire and is at the ready to help, not only our veterans, the entire community. Hehas brought to light the needs of sometime forgotten veterans. James W. Gibson LCDR USN (ret)

I have had the honor of particpating with MIAP by escorting them thru Northeastern Nevada during their "Honors at Arlington" mission. Then a few months later, with their help we were able to take five of our unclaimed veterans from Elko, NV to the Fernley, NV for our first mission in Nevada. During both missions I have found them to be very professional and believe in what they do Lynn Scott "Jester" Jr. Vice Commander POW*MIA Elko Awareness Association

I am the National Operations Coordinator for the Missing in America Veterans Recovery Program. I have been in the organization for several years and have located and interred a number of American Heroes. These ceremonies have always made me feel like I have helped accomplish something extremely important. This organization is one of the best and serves a purpose like no other.

I have been with the program since its inception and it is a wonderful thing that needs to be done. At the same time there is a lot of work that needs to be done before we can bury the Veterans and a lot of it is political with lots of trips to the politicians in order to get laws that allows us to bury the Veterans. Just think how many Veterans wouldnt have had there due if not for the MIAP and how many wont get it if we dont continue our work??

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the changing of the laws that govern how the Veterans will be handled from here on out so this wont happen in Michigan again anyway.

Initally Mr. Salanti briefed an organization that I was Chairman of the Board of. I felt an overwhelming sense of commitment to MIAP immediatly. As a Professional Soldier and Veterans Advocate, MIAP epitomized the most honorable and dedicated Veterans Program I had every seen. I have been honored on two occasions to participate in the burial of one of America's Heroes. They were experiences I will cherish forever. No man has the intellect, the courage, the leasership, and the honorable dedication to lead this MIAP than Mr. Fred Salanti. He has become my friend and one of my heroes. John E. Cleckner Sr. U.S. Army Special Forces Retired Veterans Advocate Political Activist

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

every instance I have been involved with them. MIAP is one of the best managed Non Profit Corp. I have ever been affiliated with.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help Mr. Salanti fund and locate into appropriately suitable offices so his non-profit activities could flerish and he could manage a National effort better.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the MISSION. MIAP is the most honorable and noble Veterans Org. I have ever seen in my 40 years as a Veterans Advocate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

were the most dedicated volunteers and MIAP members I could have imagined. They are truely "Silent Professionals" honoring our American Heroes everyday.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

find and bury every "Lost" Veteran Hero in America. It could expand its mission to involve other services to help Veterans, Dependants, Widows and Orphans of Needy, Disabled & Dead Veterans

Ways to make it better...

I could have helped Mr. Salanti with financial help earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

like any nonprofit, getting what is needed to continue the mission and constantly try to make it better.

One thing I'd also say is that...

MIAP is an organization I will always support, both financially and through service.

I have been with this organization since the very beginning as their web administrator and then National Chaplain and board member. I conduct funerals for the local area MIAP Veterans that are found and I made the trip across the U.S. from California to Arlington. I have never ridden with a more dedicated and honorable group of people. The only compensation these volunteers receive is the feeling they get knowing that they are doing the right thing.

grow in leaps and bounds.

Ways to make it better...

the trip across the US to Arlington had more volunteers that could have afforded to go.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

informing the public of the numbers of cremains sitting on shelves and getting laws changed to allow these cremains to be taken care of.

I have been involved with MIAP for over a year and have found the cause to have no political agenda other than to simply do the right thing on behalf of living and deceased veterans and their families. The mission is simple: locate the unidentified and unclaimed cremains of veterans in order to give them the honor, respect and military burial they deserve. I participated in the MIAP escort to Arlington National Cemetery (May 2009). I witnessed and participated in a "mission" that showed me the heart and soul of this nation as ordinary citizens showed their respect to 3 fallen heroes. People understood what this mission was about. It showed in their actions whether it was standing on a freeway over pass in the rain and dark holding a flag; a girls softball game that came to a standstill as the girls took off hats and placed them over their hearts; law enforcement providing escort or simply standing at attention and rendering a salute; a solitary figure standing at attention in a field holding a flag. In every state we saw incredible displays of respect. It was a statement that our fallen veterans have not been and will not be forgotten. It was an emotional, spiritual and honorable journey on behalf of Dunn, Mays and Callahan. As Fred would say, "they deserved nothing less." This is the heart of MIAP.. The desire to do what is right on behalf of fallen veterans who have been abandoned but not forgotten. MIAP has provided escort for two heroes this week in Redding. MIAP has a bi monthly service nest week (March 10th) for veterans who have been laid to rest without family or military honors. We will provide the military service and the honor they deserve. It is truly a privledge to be involved with MIAP.. Respectfully, Mark Boehle

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I am able to experience and participate in paying honor and tribute to America's heroes. This is an ongoing experience as we lose our heroes everyday.. They will not be and have not been forgotten.. This is the mission of MIAP.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All staff and volunteers are unpaid, unselfish, interested in doing the right thing for veterans. Most are veterans. Some like myself are civilians who have been accepted with open arms.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Have the "political" clout to ensure legislation would be passed which would allow for the identification and burial of unclaimed cremains of our veterans.
