My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Project Recover Inc, Woodland, CA, USA
As a professional genealogist who has assisted many individuals over the years in finding lost next of kin or other details about their families and have seen first hand the emotional impact of helping them reconnect, I have been impressed by Project Recover’s efforts in this area. Their dedication in locating the remains of MIAs and subsequently reuniting them with their families is simply amazing.
The organization excels in every area – vetting volunteers and team members, historical research, its information infrastructure and communication protocols and the actual physical efforts to find the MIAs are all first rate.
“Missing in Action’ is an emotional concept for service personnel. In a ten man crew of a B-17, there may be only one or two who were close to 30 years of age – the rest were teens or in their early 20s, most not old enough to buy alcohol or vote in the 1940s. Their lives and futures were snuffed out in an instant – most never married, had children or grandchildren or were able to live a full life. Project Recover assists in keeping their memories alive, and that is a truly noble cause.
