The Missing in America Project

Not many are aware of our main mission: The Missing in America Project - www.miap.us

Our goal is to locate, identify and inter the unclaimed cremains of American veterans from wars as far back as WWI. Those with no family members need a honorable burial. The Missing in America Project was launched nationwide in January, 2007.

On May 21, 2009, the Missing In America Funeral Escort Team and other riders left Sacramento California on a mission to escort the remains of Johnnie Franklin Callahan, James William Dunn and Isaiah Mays to their final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery. The services took place at Arlington on May 29, 2009.

Following in that tradition, the Pharaohs Street Rodders in 2010, assisted in the interment at Willamette National Cemetary of Betty Beckman and Solomon Durham whom both served in the US Navy during World War II.  We have started a tradition of caravaning in our vehicles each Veterans Day to Willamette National Ceremony and placing flowers at the wall where they are interred along with flowers at the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Medal of Honor recipients,  and the main memorial wall.  All are welcome to join us.  Watch the website prior to that day for details.


Veterans, with no family, deserve a proper and honorable burial.
