Listen: Little has been done by US government to recuperate bodies at Vietnam war's end
0:00 | 00

Since January 1973, when the cease-fire was put into effect, we've been told time and time again that the government would do everything possible to account for everyone. But, nothing has been done. They've only searched 5 percent of the crash sites. Mainly because we're not allowed into the areas. World leaders have to get behind us so that together we can pressure the North Vietnamese for some accounting. We have a signed agreement to have the POWs and American bodies returned.
