Thompson, Connolly Keep the Promise to MIA/POWs

Resolution ensures trade partners are active in recovery efforts

Today, U.S. Representatives Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) and Gerry Connolly (VA-11) introduced H. Con. Res. 61, a resolution to ensure transparency and cooperation from countries that enter into future trade deals with the United States, in the research and recovery efforts of our nation’s missing service members.

“As a father of a wounded warrior, every day I am thankful that my son returned home safely,” Congressman Thompson said. “Sadly, many service members were not as fortunate and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, their families and loved ones deserve no less than our greatest efforts for recovery. This bipartisan resolution makes it clear that America is serious about our promises to our service members and we welcome our trade partners to become active in our ongoing recovery efforts.”

"We have a sacred compact with the men and women who serve our nation in uniform. They make untold sacrifices on behalf of the safety and security of the United States, and we vow to support them and their families in every way that we can,” Congressman Connolly said. “When a service member makes the ultimate sacrifice, it is our duty to ensure they are returned home to their loved ones. This measure would improve collaboration with U.S. trading partners on the recovery of our fallen heroes who have not yet made it home.”

According to the Department of Defense, more than 80,000 American citizens who served in the Vietnam War, Korean War and World War II are still missing in action. Expressing the importance of collaboration from trade partners to help identify and recover Americans will lead to more efficient recovery operations and bolster goodwill between the United States and our trade partners.
