HARRISONBURG -- An internal report obtained by the Associated Press proves the non-existence of a comprehensive database for the more than 80,000 service members who are listed as missing from World War II, the Korean war and the Vietnam war.

"In my opinion, they have never had the ball because before we gave them money to reconstruct our country and our everything, we should've got an accountability of our POWs and our MIAs," said Michel Nicolas, the Post Commander of Harrisonburg's VFW Post 632.

Inside the VFW Post 632 is a 'waiting table' that's been in the post for a decade.

Nicolas says it is dedicated to the missing in action and prisoner's of war. He says more than a dozen prisoners of war in the Shenandoah Valley were returned after World War II.
