* Due to limited or conflicting data concerning location of loss for approximately 1% of WWII missing, the above map does not show a total number equal to the list of WWII missing by name elsewhere on this site. As the data from our predecessor organizations is merged and validated all publicly available information will be promptly updated.
*Around 41,000 of the unaccounted for from WWII are considered, "lost at sea."
*Above Information was provided by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (click here)
