Review for Project Recover Inc, Woodland, CA, USA
I found Project Recover 7 years ago in a youtube video by GoPro called Searching for Heroes. It highlighted the story of Project Recover finding and documenting a missing WWII plane near Palau. Since then, I have watched this video at least 100 times. Every time it hits me with the same wave of emotions. It hit home as the daughter of a Vietnam vet, granddaughter of a WWII vet, and as someone who wants to continue the legacy of service. Project Recover helped guide my senior year of high school when I spent the entire year researching WWII US Naval history. That research culminated into a large research paper as well as a manuscript of war-based poetry. Because of Project Recover, I have realized that my life's purpose is to continue their work and find advancements in oceanographic technology to help document as many WWII planes in the Pacific Theater as possible. To me, there is urgency in finding MIAs and documenting history as it happened. I still feel the same passion for this dream four years later. I still plan to pursue a military career as a Navy JAG. All of this is because of Project Recover and one video they made 7 years ago. I still follow their progress to this day. Thank you, Project Recover, for honoring those who died for our country and have been missing for too long.
