Washington D.C., 26 May 2023 – Tours of Duty, a groundbreaking nonprofit organization, is proud to announce its launch with a mission to harness the skills and dedication of veterans in the search and recovery of Prisoners of War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA) personnel. Our nonprofit seeks to create a transformative impact by offering veterans an opportunity to enhance their skill sets while connecting them to a cause deeply meaningful to them, all while working towards the ultimate goal of bringing peace and closure to grieving families.
The significance of our nonprofit’s purpose cannot be overstated. We recognize the immense sacrifices made by our brave servicemen and women, and we are committed to providing them with meaningful opportunities to continue their service after their tours of duty have ended. By employing veterans in the vital mission of locating and recovering POW/MIAs, Tours of Duty offers them a chance to utilize their unique skill sets and experiences, creating a positive and lasting impact on their lives.
Tours of Duty operates on a multifaceted approach to achieve its objectives. Firstly, we partner with experienced veterans who possess a diverse range of expertise in areas such as intelligence, logistics, field operations, and more. Through intensive training programs and collaborative teamwork, these veterans are equipped with cutting-edge techniques and technology necessary for successful search and recovery operations.
Secondly, we work closely with government agencies, military organizations, and international partners to access and analyze historical data, archival records, and eyewitness accounts. By employing a meticulous investigative approach, Tours of Duty aims to narrow down search areas, conduct expeditions, and recover the remains of fallen heroes, ensuring their rightful return to their families and the nation they served so selflessly.
At the core of our mission lies the desire to bring peace and closure to the families of our POW/MIAs. For far too long, these families have endured the pain and uncertainty of not knowing the fate of their loved ones. Tours of Duty seeks to alleviate their burden by providing answers and offering a sense of closure through the recovery of remains, proper identification, and the provision of comprehensive support to the families during their healing process.
As we embark on this noble journey, we invite individuals, organizations, and communities to join us in our cause. There are various ways to support Tours of Duty, including financial contributions, volunteering, and spreading awareness about our mission. Together, we can ensure that no fallen hero is left behind, and we can honor the courage and sacrifice of our servicemen and women.
