“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. 

“U.S. service members from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific (MARFORPAC), and guests stand as “Taps” is played during an honorable carry for the possible remains of unidentified service members lost in the Battle of Tarawa during WWII conducted by DPAA and MARFORPAC at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, July 17, 2019. The remains were recently recovered from the Republic of Kiribati by History Flight, a DPAA partner organization, and will be accessioned into DPAA’s laboratory facility in Hawaii to begin the identification process in support of DPAA’s mission to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation.

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. 

A little bit about the founder:
