United States House India Caucus Co-Chair Assessment of India US MIA Cooperation

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to call attention to the  ongoing and long-standing efforts to recover the remains of American  service members who served during World War II in northeast India.    These service members remain missing in action to this day and they  deserve a proper burial.    During World War II, the United States flew hundreds of supply  missions on a route that included flight paths directly over the Himalayas through enemy territory from India to China.    Given these treacherous routes and hazardous flying conditions, the United States took heavy causalities.    To this day Mr. Speaker, U.S. airmen remain unrecovered and unburied. Efforts to locate and document these crash sites have been  intermittently undertaken by both private citizens and the U.S. Department of Defense.----------------------------------
