          Dear Ms. Gallagher,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located several series that may be useful such as Vietnam Conflict Prisoners of War (POW), Missing In Action (MIA), and Detainee Intelligence Files , 1944 - 1986 in RG 319  and 97 series in RG 472. For access to these records please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.


          Various data file listings of American prisoners of war are in the custody of the Electronic Records Division (RDE) and are available via AAD (Access to Archival Databases) on the National Archives website at: https://aad.archives.gov/aad/.  Click on "prisoners of war" under the "Genealogy/Personal History" category. A list of the databases will appear. Select the database pertaining to Vietnam.


          For information regarding prisoners of war and U.S. servicemen missing during the Vietnam War, we suggest you contact the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), Public Affairs Office, 2300 Defense Pentagon, ATTN: External Affairs, Washington DC 20301-2300.  The web site is http://www.dpaa.mil/


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
