Missing In America Project - Veteran Recovery Program

Missing In America Project - Veteran Recovery Program

The continued reporting about the disgraceful mishandling of remains at Arlington National Cemetery prompted me to look around for more information.

The purpose of the MIA Project is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of American veterans through the joint efforts of private, state and federal organizations. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.


Here is a quote from the Missing in America Project website:

You served your country through a war, or through peacetime. You expected to receive a military burial, recognition by our government of your commitment to our great country. You expected to have honor and respect paid to you as a result of your service to our great country. Instead, you reside on a shelf in a mortuary or a storage facility at a crematorium.

The Ark Encounter Williamstown Kentucky 2017

We made it this time! Last week, we had a family trip to Cane's because we mistakenly thought the Ark was at the Creation Museum.

I call it the Ark Experience, because moving around it and in ti really is an experience. It is also an encounter, because no matter what you believe or think about this thing, it really does cause you to think.

We all enjoyed it and look forward to visiting it again.

Oh yeah...I took pictures of the "Spooky Jesus" (formerly known as "Touchdiwn Jesus" before lightning struck it...so I'm told) on the way back home.

My First Taekwondo Competition in McPherson, Kansas

The T-shirt reads, "There's no "Fear" in McPherson." I didn't buy the competition T-shirt this time, but I did have a good time with family and friends at my first Taekwondo tournament.
