Missing the Missing in Action

Rudloff, Stephen A.

National Review;2/14/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p163
This article presents information on issues related to those U.S. soldiers who are referred to as Missing in Action (MIA). In the 24 months that have passed since the termination of active U.S. military participation in Southeast Asia, the list of MIAs remains tragically close to the 1,300 figure. It is informed that the U.S. Congress is encumbered by one political crisis after another, and all this while, those 1,300 Americans remain shrouded in a grey mass of uncertainty, shapeless figures in a game of political expediency.
