THE NATIONAL LEAGUE of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia was incorporated in the District of Columbia on May 28, 1970. Voting membership is comprised of wives, children, parents, siblings and other close relatives of Americans who were or are listed as Prisoners of War (POW), Missing in Action (MIA), Killed in Action/Body not Recovered (KIA/BNR) and returned American Vietnam War POWs.

National League  

The League’s sole purpose is to obtain the release of all prisoners, the fullest possible accounting for the missing and repatriation of all recoverable remains of those who died serving our nation during the Vietnam War.


JPAC: Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command Their mission is to conduct global search, recovery and laboratory operations to identify unaccounted-for Americans from past conflicts in order to support the Department of Defense’s personnel accounting efforts.
Employing nearly 500 joint military and civilian personnel, JPAC spans the globe in search of unaccounted-for Americans. Personnel from JPAC, along with other U.S. and foreign specialists, conduct research, investigations, and recovery operations to identify remains of Americans unaccounted-for from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Cold War. The accounting process is organized into the following areas: research and analysis, investigation and recovery, and identifications.


ROLLING THUNDER, INC. members are old and young, men and women, veterans and non-veterans.  All are united in the cause to bring full accountability for the Prisoners of War-Missing In Action (POW/MIA) of all wars, reminding the government, the media and the public by our watchwords: “We Will Not Forget."
