Missing in America Project
Veteran Recovery Program
You served your country through a war,
or through peacetime. You expected to
receive a military burial, recognition by
our government of your commitment to
our great country. You expected to
have honor and respect paid to you as
a result of your service to
our great country. Instead, you reside
on a shelf in a mortuary or a storage
facility at a crematorium.
of the MIAP project
is to locate, identify and inter the
unclaimed cremains of veterans through
the joint efforts of private, state and
federal organizations. These f
orgotten veterans have served our
country and, as such, deserve to
be buried with honor and respect.
The impetus for our fine program
began in November 2006. The Idaho
State Veterans cemetery interred
21 cremains of forgotten veterans,
with full military honors and the dignity
these fallen heroes so richly deserved.
Recently, a state hospital announced
that 3500 cremains were on shelves
to be identified. (The link to the
newspaper article is:
On the shelf were cremains for the
time span of the 1890s to 1971.
It is estimated 1,000 of these
cremains are veterans. This is
happening in every state. (cont' top opposite page)

- David Lubow, CEO Falcon Industries -
This project has just begun. We need
to blanket every mortuary and
cemetery in the United States and
let them know there are people who
desire to claim our veterans. We
need to let them know it is our
desire to see they are interred with
the honor and respect they deserve.
They served our great nation.
It is now our great nation’s turn
to serve them.
The veterans languishing on shelves
need us. They need America to step
forward and ensure they are buried
with honor. They need America to
show their thanks for their service.
Without them, we would not have
the freedoms we enjoy today.
