Material evidence from an excavation site in the laboratory of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command or JPAC, Hickam AFB, Hawaii. The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command is located on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The command was activated on Oct. 1, 2003, created from the merger of the 30-year-old U.S. Army Central Identification Laboratory, Hawaii, and the 11-year-old Joint Task Force - Full Accounting. The mission of JPAC is to achieve the fullest possible accounting of all Americans missing as a result of the nation's past conflicts. On average, JPAC identifies about six MIAs each month. To date, the U.S. government has identified over 1,400 individuals.
