Based in Arlington, Virginia, VVMF (the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund) is the nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1980 to build a national memorial dedicated to all who served with the U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War. Incorporated on April 27, 1979 by a group of veterans led by Jan C. Scruggs, the organization sought a tangible symbol of recognition from the American people for those who served in the war.

The Coalition of Families of Korean and Cold War POW/MIAs pursues answers to the fate of 8000 American soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors still missing-in-action from the Korean and Cold Wars. We are the families of the missing men … brothers, sisters, wives, children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren. We assist each other in our individual searches, while helping to shape the nature and scope of the mission overall.
Do you have evidence about the fate of an American serviceman still missing from the Korean War, Cold War or Vietnam War? We’re a group of American journalists and experts seeking to uncover what happened to United States servicemen who were captured alive but never returned during these conflicts. Our focus, and that of many families of missing Americans, is on learning the fate of these men, not fixing blame on those who captured them during wars now long over.
An estimated 3 million North Koreans have perished under North Korea’s brutal dictatorial regime since the mid-1990's. Families continue to starve to death as the North Korean government withholds food rations to entire regions of the nation. The government arbitrarily detains, tortures, and executes its citizens, including children, in a large network of prison/labor camps. Hundreds of thousands of North Koreans have fled to China to survive, however they live in fear of forced repatriation, imprisonment, and possible execution after repatriation. Children whose parents have died or been separated from them wander the streets in search of food and protection. We must act now.
In this special edition of Frontpage Symposium, we have assembled a panel of four distinguished guests to reveal the tragic truth about what really happened to our POWs.
