McCaskill Statement on National POW/MIA Recognition Day

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and daughter of a World War II veteran, today released the following statement in honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day:

“Today is a reminder to the loved ones of our missing heroes that the United States will never abandon its obligations. We must continue to raise the level of accountability with our recovery efforts, to ensure those families are getting accurate information, and to ensure their loved ones’ great sacrifices were not in vain. I join Missouri and the rest of America in conveying our deepest gratitude to those who have given their lives for this great country, and to all those who continue to fight for our freedoms today.”

After leading a years-long, successful effort to correct mismanagement at Arlington National Cemetery, McCaskill recently led a Senate hearing aimed at rooting out extensive, systemic problems plaguing the Pentagon program tasked with finding, identifying, and returning the remains of American military personnel missing in action.
