The Defense POW-Missing Personnel Office has produced and published on their web site
several useful reports on men who are missing from the Vietnam War, Korean War, and Cold

them -- Adobe is available free and the DPMO site has a link to download Adobe. Some
of the reports are in HTML or ASCII format.
