DoD Agency to Collaborate with Romanian Teams

WASHINGTON  –   The United States Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) is collaborating with the Romanian Ministry of National Defense, the National History Museum of Romania, the "Princely Court" National Museums Complex - Târgovișta, and the Argeș Country Museum. The purpose of the humanitarian collaborative effort is to locate fallen airmen who gave their lives serving their nation during World War II.

DPAA’s global mission is to provide the fullest possible accounting for Department of Defense personnel missing from past conflicts to their families and the nation. DPAA’s Europe-Mediterranean Directorate is at the forefront of accounting efforts for more than 22,000 Americans missing from World War II in 37 countries across Europe, the Mediterranean, and North Africa.

The United States is truly appreciative of the Romanian government's support in this humanitarian effort. DPAA also thanks to the Romanian partner museums' collaboration. DPAA looks forward to a continued partnership with all involved entities.
