Why is the inscribed date of death of the missing in action frequently different than the date on
which the decedent was declared missing?

Without confirmed information to the contrary, a War Department Review Board established the
official date of death of those missing as one year and a day from the date on which the
individual was placed in missing status.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The American Battle Monuments Commission, established by the Congress in 1923, is an
agency of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. The Commission administers,
operates, and maintains twenty-four permanent American burial grounds on foreign soil.
Presently there are 124,917 U.S. War Dead interred at these cemeteries, 30,921 of World War I,
93,246 of World War II and 750 of the Mexican War. Additionally 6,033 American veterans and
others are interred in the Mexico City and Corozal American Cemeteries.

Following World War I and II, the interment of the remains of War Dead was carried out by the
American Graves Registration Service, Quartermaster General of the War Department. At that
time, the next of kin authorized to make the decision regarding their loved oneāĐŪterment was
given the option of having the remains returned to the U.S. for permanent interment at a national
or private cemetery or permanently interment at the overseas American military cemetery in the
region where death occurred.
