The mission of the Missing In America (MIA) Project is to honor deceased veterans whose remains go unclaimed. The group contacts funeral homes and cemeteries, trying to reclaim the unclaimed and give them the proper honors. The focus of the MIA Project is to conduct a massive, nation-wide effort to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed remains of forgotten veterans.
