Vietnam War Helicopter Wreckage Discovered in Laos.
Above photo: Helicopter wreckage from the Vietnam War discovered in Laos (JPAC).
The DPAA (Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency), the organisation that took over from JPAC, still diligently searches for the remains of US servicemen lost during the Vietnam war, in the jungles and rice fields of Asia.
A while back they discovered a helicopter crash site in remote mountainous jungle near Ta-Oy, Laos, a remote village where I was recently based as I explored the remnants and routes of the old Ho Chi Minh Trail, for my Vietnam War/Backpacker crossover novel, BACK.
These are a couple of photographs from that excavation.
I have also written about the then-JPAC Ta-Oy MIA facility and their efforts to locate MIAs in the jungles of Laos here: http://peteralanlloyd.com/general-news/jpacs-search-for-vietnam-war-mias-in-the-jungles-of-laos/
See the trailer for our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
