  • U.S. soldier James H. Elliott, who disappeared while on patrol one night in August 1950 during the Korean War.

For sixty years, Jorja Elliott-Reyburn has lived without a clear idea of what happened to her father, a U.S. soldier who disappeared during the Korean War.

 

But no month has been as difficult for the 65-year-old Ms. Elliott-Reyburn as this July.

 

As officials in Washington and Seoul commemorated the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended hostilities in 1953, and as North Korea staged a lavish “victory celebration,” Ms. Elliott-Reyburn was busy getting ready to confront the Pentagon with documents and questions about what happened to her father, James H. Elliott.

 

During the desperate battle for control of the so-called Pusan Perimeter, Mr. Elliott went out on patrol one night in August 1950 Scissors-32x32.png

Thanks for link to article, @Draggingtree

 

A brave, loving, and determined daughter. Unfortunately, with time there will be no direct connection to that conflict and thus the government and bureaucrats can wash their hands.

Welcome To DPMO

"Keeping the Promise", "Fulfill their Trust" and "No one left behind" are several of many mottos that refer to the efforts of the Department of Defense to recover those who became missing while serving our nation.

 

More than 83,000 Americans are missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War and the 1991 Gulf War. Hundreds of Defense Department men and women -- both military and civilian -- work in organizations around the world as part of DoD's personnel recovery and personnel accounting communities. They are all dedicated to the single mission of finding and bringing our missing personnel home. The mission requires expertise in archival research, intelligence collection and analysis, field investigations and recoveries, and scientific analysis. Scissors-32x32.png
