My first experience with the missing in America project was meeting Rick Prioetti and he was telling about the starting up of the project, next thing I heard about was the honor to Arlington project which was totally overwhelling to me to think about all the work that went into getting this project together. I got more information and details on the Honors to Arlington through a Channel 7 news story my own Son did on the MIAP. Then we meet again at a Viet Nam Veterans of America State Council meeting in Fresno where Fred Salanti did a presentation on MIAP, listening to Fred and the passion in his voice about the project locked me in as a supporter and I encourage my V.V.A. chapter to support them with some funds. Being able to follow the ride to Arlington by internet was a genius idea and gathered more supporters along the way. What we are most proud and supportive of is the MIAP is a National project started in our own backyard Shata County. My next experience with MIAP was our chapters planning to celebrate The Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Celebration on Sat. March 27. The idea came up to do a Motorcade from the Vets hall to the Igo Vets Cemetery. I knew exactly who to contact...MIAP. I got in contact with Rick P and he talked to Fred and they did what I wished and expected them to do, they took the motorcade over as a MIAP project and that is one thing about the celebration we did not have to worry about, It was done! They have been to every planning meeting actually a few more than myself. MIAP is an asset to the County, Community and Veterans Community. Thank you M.I.A.P.

I am very involved in Veterans issues in St. Johns County, FL. Myself and others canvassed the funeral homes in the ares, it was discovered that we had the cremains of a veteran that had not been claimed by his family. Thanks to the information supplied by the Missing in America Project, we were able to provide the honors due this veteran and give him a final resting place respectful of his service.

I have been involved with the Northern California Veterans Cemetery and have had the pleasure of working with Fred Salanti. He is a remarkable man and the MIAP program he has started has been much needed. He has taken it upon himself to correct a long negelected problem. Hero's have been left languishing on shelves in mortuarys across America. Fred has made it his main focus to see that these men and women are buried with respect and honor. Some have been Metal Of Honor winners, the highest honor this nation can bestow upon a person. Every veteran Fred and his hepers find are buried with honor and treated with the respect they deserve. God Bless the MIAP!

The Great!

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

I am a member of the Support Committe and as such meet with Fred Salonti at least once a month to find ways to better serve our veterans. I continue to marvel at the amount of time and energy that is spent trying to help Veterans and their families.

I have only attened one service at Igo, but it moved me to tears and made me proud that there are people out there who care about our forgotten veterans. I did not know the soldiers that were laid to rest that day and felt honored to attend such a beautiful service. The men and women of our military fight willingly for our freedom and should never be forgotten.

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

fund the locating and burial of the many thousands of unclaimed remains of our fallen soldiers. It could also make it possible for maip to escort our fallen soldiers across the nation, who are killed in action in the current war.

Every Veteran deserves to have the highest honors available upon their death. After all this is the tradition of our military. My husband rides with MIAP and we both feel that what they do is honorable and right. We support them whole heartedly.
