The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency's (DPAA) mission is to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel from past conflicts to their families and the nation. Within this mission, they search for missing personnel from World War II (WWII), the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf Wars, and other recent conflicts. Their research and operational missions include coordination with hundreds of countries and municipalities around the world.

Since April 2018 Tino Dam, Peter Mulder, Ton de Louw and Bart van der Sterren are official Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) volunteers. They earned this badge during one of the DPAA and Stichting Missing In Action (MIA) joint efforts bringing home a missing soldier.
In 2018, Stichting Missing In Action (MIA), the Defense POW/MIA Accouting Agency (DPAA) and the University of Osnabrück went to the German Huertgenwald to seach for the remains of a U.S. missing soldier. Stichting Missing In Action (MIA) has this project pending for a long time. During a short film DPAA Dr. Ian Spurgeon provides some World War II Huertgenwald history, information on the 2018 project and the future projects where Stichting Missing In Action and the Defense POW/MIA Accouting Agency will work on as a team.
