After attending a large service for 9 "found" veterans, I was hooked! I asked what I could do and was sort of given an area to check funeral homes for stored cremains. After that I got involved in their escorts of veterans from funeral homes to the Veterans Cemetery in Igo. I also participated in the "Honors at Arlington" mission.

MIAP is helping to get laws passed that allow unclaimed veterans cremains to be interred with the honor and respect they deserve.

It was with great honor and humility to have participated in two MIAP escorts. The first was the "Honors at Arlington" escort. We picked up the escort in Carlin, NV on May 21, 2009 and escorted them to Elko, NV. Our association held a ceremony and BBQ for the mission, then on Friday, May 22, we escorted the group to the NV-UT state line. The second escort, on August 28, 2009, was performed by our association with the assistance of the MIAP. This was Nevada's first escort and involved escorting the remains of five veterans from Elko, NV to Fernley, NV. As a patriot, being surrounded by so many veterans and other patriots while performing such a noble mission cannot be accurately described in words. I have never been prouder!

When I was informed that this Great Dishonor had been lingering for so long to so many I was Shocked and Immediately said "what can I do to Help"? To this day so many still haven't heard or did not pay attention to any of the information about this Tragedy. I like to think that WE all have been raised better than to let this to carry on. Every Volunteer from the Cemetery staff that do so much to accommodate us, to the Last Guard preparing to ride Off like a lone horse soldier as soon as the tears clear from his eyes, Have their Hearts and sense of Honor abiding in the appropriate order, Sense of Honor , Duty , Respect , Family, Justice, Volunteerism, Sacrifice and Love for a Brother or Sister who for whatever sad reason have left their Mortal Remains and no one has seen fit to Honor their sacrifice, This cannot continue !!! and yet every day a veteran dies and is put on a shelf with the others. We Need Money to Pay for the remains, Its just that simple, we can volunteer our time as well as money. From what I have seen none of us appears to be wealthy and thats why we need donations

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

I have Had the Unique Honor and view from the Pulpit at the Services, I cannot possibly begin to write what I feel when I see all of us together as a family, in unity to pay the respect, Honor and Love to OUR lost one

Ways to make it better...

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

NOT use the word Cremains very often, as it depersonalises the Veteran a b it too much for my liking

To See The Love and the Honor

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

the Staff at the Iowa Veterans Cemetery of 2010 has Me very excited, These are dedicated and caring individuals, Though we are few in Iowa, there are many organisations who have helped in the past American Legion, Legion Riders, Patriot Guard, VFW, VV

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

Put a Huge war chest together like that we could take care of the 6,000+ Known Veterans with Honor and the respect they deserve

Ways to make it better...

If we had more Volunteers and More Funding we have many vacancies open in Iowa

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

Funding , Cooperation from those holding the Remains of our family members, warehouses, Funeral Homes, Hospitols including the VA

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

I am Outraged that this Country, for which so many of us have sacrificed, Has some how found a way of letting this go on for over ONE HUNDRED years

I am currently a member of two other veterans groups that assist vererans with funeral and food assistance. I first learned of MIAP about 1 1/2 years ago. Until that time I was totally unaware of the forgotten heros awaiting proper final honors and arrangements. I am now attending the honors ceremonies every other month at N. CA Veterans cemetary and am amazed each time of the large number that have been found during that short period of time. This is something that needs to be done on a national basis and expanded as quickly as possible.

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."

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.

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 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.
