“Using Geospatial Technology to Bring Them Home.”
We’re delighted to shine a light on a non-profit organization doing big, wonderful things using geospatial technology. History Flights (www.historyflight.com) is focused on locating the remains of those brave men and women who may have been killed in action (KIA) or missing in action (MIA) overseas.
(cite: www.historyflight.com/story )
By using several different pieces of tech and programs, they can scan areas that had high volume of combat in order to pinpoint the locations of fallen warriors. They then go in, retrieve the remains, and return them to their families or descendants. We can’t imagine the suffering of those related to the men and women who haven’t come home and believe that History Flights is offering necessary closure.
