Our book, "Foreign Correspondent," published September 2015, reported there were 1,627 still missing-in-action as of 1 May 2015 from the Vietnam War, according to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), the lead agency on POWs and MIAs within the U.S. Department of Defense. Some have been accounted for since then and as of 9 June 2016 the DPAA reports there are 1,618 now listed as MIA from the Vietnam War. As we say in our book, the number classified as Vietnam War MIA is remarkable given the U.S. sent 3.4 million Americans to Southeast Asia during this war.
