The Harsh Reality of an MIA Family
M. Reitano | NY, USA | 10/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Learn from the journey of this New England family as they struggle with our government, politicians, and foreign governments to get answers to a 50 year old question - What happened to Korean War POW Roger Dumas? Roger was last seen at the exchange point at Freedom Bridge in Korea to be repatriated back to the US, back to his family. Suddenly and inexplicably he and a dozen or so others were taken away from the group, never to be seen or heard from again.

Follow the amazing dedication of Roger's brother Bob as he does battle with various governmental agencies who have, for decades, stonewalled families of those with loved ones who are still Missing in Action. This story documents not just the plight of the Dumas Family but gives a shocking yet stark overview of the POW/MIA Issue and some of the major players on each side of this debate. Watching the excerpts from the 1992 Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs clearly shows that two members of this committee had personal as well as political agendas when they arrived at this committee and how the fate of thousands of men was simply pushed aside in the name of "global progress".
The emotional rollercoaster you will experience after watching this DVD will stay with you for days, if not weeks. Every American should see this story."

"For anyone who is not familiar with the POW/MIA issue,this is a must see video.Especially for those who were born after The Korean and Vietnam conflicts.It is very educational.It brings to "LIGHT" the failures of our government to find the truth about what happened to our men and women.It brings out in the open that we(Government)did indeed left men behind(ALIVE)in Korea and Indochina.Watch this video and get involved!

Well Done. Tough to Watch.

"The movie interviews many high-profile people such as former current and former congressmen.

By the time you finish watching this well-made documentary you will be stunned by a couple of realizations you come to. This movie is like a bucket of cold water over the head."
