Review for Missing In America-Veteransrecovery Program, Grants Pass, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am the Commander of Hu Puus Witam Color Guard, Shasta County, California, consisting of American Indian Military Veterans from WW11 to date. Hu Puus Witasm Color Guard is dedicated to providing Military protocol and American Indian burial ceremonies at both Veterans Cemetaries and Private Indian burial grounds, MIAP people have recovered from mortuaries and brought to us cremains from WW1, WW11, for final/proper rites. Without MIAP we would not have known about our forgotten Native brothers and sisters. The Hu Puus Witam Color Guard of Shasta Co, Ca applaud the Missing In America Program founded by Fred Salanti et.,al. MIAP has found many of our forgotten so we can provide proper Mil & Indian final rites. Thank you MIAP. signed/ M. Gail Hawthorne, Comdr., HPWCG< Sha Co, Ca Vet, 9+ yrs US Army (Cold War/Korea Vet)

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

Military Burials of Native American (Indian) Vets from WW1, WW11, Korea

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

Provide their program with additional/sufficient funds without their having to continually making aappeals for funds.

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

Taking care of our vets where others have failed

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

Cordial, most Cordial

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

Fulfil it's Mission Stastement, and no deceased Vet would be unaccounted for.

Ways to make it better...

Dificuls to improve on perfection at the time.

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

Organizating without an operating budget

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

They would continue their program at the grass roots level with sufficient funding to get the task finished which includes all Morturary's contacting the MIAP for unclaimed Veterans remains. Clear their shelves of all Vets remains.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & As Color Guard, participated in Mil Final Rites for Amer Indian Vets.
