The Defense Department’s POW/Missing Personnel Office has placed online an electronic database of names of all US military members still missing from World War II. The action is the result of three-year’s work, according to a Pentagon release. The database comprises nearly 78,000 names. DPMO plans to add new names and information as it located other historical documents and personnel files. (The DPMO Web site is here.)
The Department of the Air Force does not consistently or systematically ask Airmen or Guardians how dormitory conditions affect their quality of life and readiness, which reduces the department’s ability to identify and prioritize improvement efforts, according to a Government Accountability Office study published Sept. 19.
