A NEW documentary claims to have discovered an American soldier 44 years after he went missing in the Vietnam War.
Unclaimed, a documentary from Canadian filmmaker Michael Jorgensen, purports to find Master Sergeant John Hartley Robertson, who was presumed dead in 1968.
Sgt Robertson was thought to have died after his helicopter was shot down over Laos in 1966 on a classified US Army mission.
Unclaimed follows the story of a 76-year-old American man who can only speak Vietnamese...

Makes you wonder how many more of the 58,000 were simply written off because the nature of their deaths would have brought too many questions to bare on Americas cross border covert actions.
Sad to think that maybe his wife and kids, his parents and brother's have lived with the daily anguish of not knowing how he died..when he wasn't even dead.
If hope they can DNA him, bring him home, and take his name off the wall.
“It's not that the Vietnamese won't let him go; it's that our government doesn't want him.
Following the battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954, the Vietnamese refused to return their French POWs unless Paris agreed to pay financial compensation for the war. The French leaders paid the money and got their men back. Similarly, the Vietnamese refused to return their American POWs unless the U.S. government agreed to pay reparations. Nixon signed a document promising to do exactly that, but the Vietnamese, being cautious, kept many of the POWs back until the money was delivered. Then Congress refused to authorize the funds because “America doesn’t lose wars.” Nixon and later U.S. leaders never acknowledged the fate of these captives lest the American people become outraged. And as the years and decades went by, and various schemes to ransom or rescue the POWs were considered and rejected, their continued existence became a major liability to numerous powerful political figures, whose reputations would have been destroyed if any of the prisoners ever returned and told his story to the American people. So none of them ever came home. __________________________________________

A pretty interesting article.
I'm curious as to why his children would back out of the DNA testing.
I would think they'd want to know if he's their father. I know i would no matter how long it's been.
