The U.S. Army's Past Conflicts Repatriation branch is the Army's liaison to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. The DPAA is tasked with recovering missing personnel, listed as either Prisoners of War or Missing in Action from past wars and conflicts that the U.S. was involved in. The DPAA uses a combination of history and science to identify the remains of service members when they are unearthed in remote locations around the globe. Material evidence such as weapons, aircraft debris, or even jewelry can be used to narrow the scope when working with the possible remains of service members who may have died in incidents such as an aircraft crash. When a Soldier or Army Air Forces Airmen is positively identified, it is the responsibility of the U.S. Army Human Resources Command and its Past Conflicts Repatriation Branch to repatriate those remains.(U.S. Army photo by Master Sgt. Brian Hamilton/ released)

World War I had a huge impact on the culture and technology of war, initiating social changes, reshaping national boundaries across the globe, and setting the United States on the path to becoming a world superpower. It was also the beginning of the Army’s reliance on a large federal Reserve force that would eventually form the U.S. Army Reserve of today – capable, combat-ready, lethal units, trained and equipped to meet the operational needs of the Army and the Joint war-fighting environment to win the Nation’s wars. Four million American men and women served in uniform during World War I, and more were killed during America’s short 18-month involvement in World War I, than during the entire Vietnam War and Korean Conflict combined.
