Cancelled - The UW MIA Recovery & Identification Project

Bringing Missing Service Members Home

Since 2016, the UW MIA Recovery and Identification Project has been working in Partnership with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) to identify, recover, and repatriate the remains of service members lost during WWII.  The project combines archaeological, forensic, and historical research methods to conduct recovery missions in western Europe.  This multi-disciplinary approach provides students and volunteers with valuable fieldwork, service, and leadership experiences, and helps fulfill our Nation's promise to bring all of our missing service members home.  In this presentation Dr. Gregg Jamison will discuss his experiences serving as the lead archaeologist on the project, including reflections on methods, challenges, successes, and some of the project's future goals.

Dr. Gregg Jamison is an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Waukesha.  He is the lead archaeologist on the UW MIA Recovery and Identification Project.
