I voluntered with MIAP from the very first in 2006. I have contacted and worked in several funeral homes that have over 100+ unclaimed cremated remains. At first you sort through the names looking for veterans and spouses. Then as you narrow the list down they start to become people again and you start calling them be their first name. This isn't weird, it is very personal. It changes your life, you start to have a different outlook about today and tomorrow. To locate and have our veterans properly buried gives me peace. I am a veteran and served in Vietnam and know what it is to not be recognised for your service. This is my way of giving back. Bud Thieme

The Great!

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

escorting three veterans across our great nation from Sacramento CA, to Arlington cemetery and participating in the burial service of each.

Ways to make it better...

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

not change anything at this time, things are working well for an organization that is only four years old.

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

the positive response from the general public when I explain what we are doing.

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

very giving people in their time and money.

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

do amazing things.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to focus on the task of locating veterans in funeral homes.

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

making more people and especially legislators aware of how many unclaimed veterans there are.

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

I truly have enjoyed meeting and working with all the people that have helped MIAP.

Last year, I rode with Missing in America Project (MIAP) as a photographer on the trip to Arlington that made national and world news. I was deeply impressed with what I saw, the respect that these MIAP riders had for the soldiers we were transporting; I was moved by the stories of each soldier we buried - what they gave so that we might have a better life today. I was also impressed with the volunteers that I worked with, their dedication to the cause and their personal stories about being vets and working with this under served population. It opened my eyes to the hidden world of the veteran, all too often forgotten and overlooked once they leave the service or come home. MIAP makes sure that no one is ever forgotten. MIAP's accomplishments are just astounding and I don't know of any other veteran group that can claim to have raised veteran awareness quite like this. My assignment ended last year but I still am doing what I can to promote this wonderful cause.

I have located 8 forgotten heroes, identified them as Veterans and given them the Military Funeral with Honors that they were promised. It has been the most rewarding experience that I have had, I was honored to do this and will continue to do what I can do to find those Brothers and Sisters still out there in cardboard boxes sitting on shelves gathering dust. I have participated in several other services and am the MIAP Newsletter Publisher

I am a volunteer with the Missing in America Project. I have been associated with them for about 2 years. I have been to funeral homes and also on a cross country trip to Arlington Virginia to bury 3 heros. There could be no greater group to get involved with. It is an honor to stand with and around these heros.

I've been attending MIAP events for about 2 years now. I think the most memorable event was riding up to Oregon and attending the burial of more than 10 recovered veterans and seeing the large turnout of folks from both states.

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

In my own SMALL way helping to show our vets the respect they deserve, even when no one else would. Every vet deserves respect, including proper honors at the end of our lives and helping with this gives great satisfaction.

The integrity and honor that all members and volunteers showed was incredible. Many have been in the military, and even those who were not understood what it meant for these remains to be placed here at ANC. Even through the many miles it took to ride from California to DC, they rode for one common goal. I met with most who rode or came, and the common "brotherhood" and love that shown through was incredible. I am glad to know that while we as young soldiers stand on the frontlines, there will always be those who stand behind us and look out for those who went missing along the way whether it be out there or here in our own back yard.

Make leaps and bounds in the search for those veterans who have gone missing in America. To think that we as a nation allowed a Medal of Honor recipient get buried in a random cemetery because of his color shows that we had a unjust past, MIAP made amnds

I went coast to coast with this group to take a Medal of Honor recipient and two Silver Star veterans to Arlington for burial. It became a spiritual adventure as crowds gathered to honor these veterans and stand along roads and in towns to display flags and salute this journey. This is a daily activity for this group as indicated here: The purpose of the MIA Project is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of American veterans through the joint efforts of private, state and federal organizations. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.

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

The patriotism and emotional connection with other veterans who assist in working on this project.

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

outstanding in that their belief is to simple provide the honor and respect due to a person who protected and provided us with the freedoms we now enjoy.

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

have representatives in every state with a budget to pay any fees and purchase a proper burial for these forgotten veterans. Purchase professional database access to find military history on abandoned cremains.
