Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA)

DPAA was established January 15, 2015. The Department of Defense is transforming the way they account for missing personnel for conflicts dating from World War II through the First Gulf War. DPAA integrates the former offices responsible for this work: the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO), and Life Sciences Equipment Laboratory (LSEL).

STATISTICS - ALL Unaccounted for from Past Conflicts

  WWII Korea Cold War Vietnam War Iraq & Other Conflicts Total
Total MIA * 72,906 * 7,699 126 1,597 6 82,334

* As part of DPAA's data consolidation effort we have validated the number of missing from WWII. This new figure reflects the elimination of duplicative records, erroneous entries, and information that demonstrates the individual was properly accounted for by the appropriate authorities before our Agency inherited those responsibilities.
* Reflects actual number still unaccounted-for. PMKOR database count is slightly higher due to several entries pending administrative review.
