The National League of POW/MIA Families, incorporated on May 28, 1970, was formed to obtain the release of all prisoners, the fullest possible accounting for the missing and repa-triation of all recoverable remains of those who died serving our nation during the Vietnam War. Without the League, America's POW/MIAs would long ago have been forgotten. The League is proud that our efforts led to today's world-wide mission. We are also proud that our flag is universally and legally recognized as the symbol of America's commitment to recover our POW/MIAs.
The League is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)3 humanitarian organization, financed by contri-butions from the families, veterans, and other Americans. Donations are gratefully accepted, tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and may be made by sending a check to the League office, electronically by visiting www.powmia-families.org, and through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #10218) or United Way.
The League's voting membership is comprised of the wives, children, parents, siblings and other close relatives of Americans who were or are listed as POW, MIA, KIA/BNR, and returned US POWs from the Vietnam War. Associate Membership is comprised of extended family member relatives of POW/MIAs who do not meet the voting requirements, veterans, and other concerned citizens.
American public support is critical to achieving the League goals: accounting as fully as possible for our POW/MIAs, America's UNRETURNED VETERANS, by obtaining concrete answers that bring their families, friends, and our Nation long-awaited peace of mind. The first steps:
