To date, their
are literally thousands of Americans listed as POW/MIA.
Of those thousands, hundreds once called Pennsylvania
home. To date, 18 Pennsylvanians remain POW or MIA
from World War I, 448 from World War II, 594
from the Korean War, 100 from the Vietnam War, and 16 from
Cold War incidents.
It is time for the United States to
return to the mountains, jungles, and rice-paddies of
Vietnam and Korean to re-claim the sons and daughters of
America -- the boys which the U.S. Government left behind.
It is true that the U.S. Government has been providing
repatriation efforts in Vietnam, however, these efforts
are slow at best. We continually sit down with North Korea
in hopes of opening up channels for beginning repatriation
efforts -- such as to match those on-going in Vietnam.
However, they [N. Korea] demand aid in return for our
heroes and promptly remove themselves from the table when
their demands go unheeded. How dare ANY country
place a price on the duty and honor of returning National
Write to the President of the
United States, and your Statesman as well. Remind them of
their obligations to "We the people..." and to
those who were led by honor and devotion to duty. Let them
know that their constituency is none to pleased with their
actions and efforts (or lack thereof) on behalf of our
POW/MIAs. Sternly remind them that these Soldiers,
Sailors, Airman, and Marines went into harms way for them
-- and they abided by the code of conduct. It's time for
Washington to abide by that code too! Throughout the
confines of this site, you will find a listing of
Pennsylvania's loved ones (and some their stories) who
remain unaccounted for today. Let's work towards taking
this web-page, and one's just like it, off the internet as
soon as possible. Keep in mind that, although this site
lists only Pennsylvania's boys, ALL of our POW/MIAs are
just as important! I hope that your stay is educational,
as well as informative, and that you walk [or surf] away
feeling a little bit different. Speak for those who can no
longer speak for themselves!
Thank you for taking the time to
visit this site!
