News Conference: Missing-in-Action Repatriation Bill

On September 10, 2019, a bipartisan group of legislators introduced a bill to help find and repatriate the remains of the more than 1,500 Wisconsin Service Members still Missing-in-Action (MIA) since World War II. Since Pearl Harbor, approximately 80,000 U.S. Service Members across the globe, including more than 1,500 from Wisconsin, are still reported as MIA. With a multi-year backlog in locating the remains of these MIAs, and many WWII, Korean, and Vietnam-era family members advancing in age, time is of the essence.
