In Search of MIAs—in Alaska:

The Defense Department’s POW/Missing Personnel Office has just announced that a team of five Japanese and three Americans has gone to Attu Island, Alaska, for a four-day mission—searching for the remains of Japanese soldiers missing in action from World War II. Washington and Tokyo will make a decision about follow-on excavations after evaluating the team’s findings. After World War II, US forces found 235 sets of Japanese remains on Attu.
