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.

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

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

being able to belong to miap and not being a vet

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

people that have a trure belief that they can get it done

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

we could find all the vetrans in the world that are wating to be buried and get the job done with honors they deserve

Ways to make it better...

if i could have done more

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

finding all vetrans cremians and getting buried

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

if we could get everone to understand that there are men and women out there that have served their country with honor and are sitting on a shelf waiting to be buried ,and we could get the job done it would be wonderful.

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.

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
