NOVEMBER 28, 2018
Of interest to members of Rolling Thunder, veterans’ groups and others who have not forgotten those soldiers who were prisoners of war or still missing in action during the Vietnam War, or through military action in Laos.
Judicial Watch has sued the Defense Department, seeking government records from 1973 to the present regarding American soldiers who were prisoners of war or missing in action.
“Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the Pentagon failed to respond to two Freedom of Information Act requests,” the watchdog organization said in a statement.
The request includes access to lists of POWs and MIAs provided to North Vietnam, as well as materials used to brief President Nixon in 1973 about those who could be remaining in that nation.
