There are 83,000 missing and unaccounted for Americans from World War II forward, yet many families of the missing have yet to provide a family reference sample to assist in DNA identifications. Currently, 89 percent of Korean War families have provided samples, as well as 83 percent of Cold War families and 81 percent of Vietnam War families, but only 4 percent of WWII families have. The government last year identified 107 MIAs, but more could have been identified—and faster—if more family reference samples were on file. Please forward the following service casualty office contact information to MIA families in your hometown, as well as to local newspapers:
Marine Corps: 800-847-1597
Air Force: 800-531-5501
State Department: 202-485-6106
As some of you may already know, members of the 2d Cavalry Association and the 2d Cavalry’s Reed Museum have teamed up with citizens of the Czech Republic in an effort to locate and identify several MIA’s lost in Czechoslovakia at the end of WW II in Europe. Much progress has been made and we are very hopeful. Let’s bring these boys home to their families.Read More

By Chuck Roberts, Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Public Affairs
Lt. Gen. Donald M. Campbell Jr., commanding general of U.S. Army Europe, reenlists Staff Sgt. Tyronne Jones in a Feb. 19, 2014, ceremony at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Germany.
In the aftermath of being downed by a gunshot wound during a firefight in Afghanistan, several thoughts came to the mind of Staff Sgt. Tyronne Jones — among them was reenlistment. Sadly, the date and location were not the only things that changed that day.
I am grateful to be able to report that we are commencing our final fundraiser to update the memorial in Vilseck.
I would appreciate your comments on the flyer attached here.
The on line donation link is live. Please follow it to see the website I created for the project.
