DPAA - Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency is an agency within the United States Department of Defense whose mission is to recover missing personnel who are listed as Prisoners of War (POW), or Missing In Action (MIA), from all past wars and conflicts and from countries around the world.   It was formed on January 30, 2015, as the result of a mandated merger of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command, the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office, and parts of the Air Force's Life Sciences Lab.
