Throughout those countries, teams continue to investigate crash and burial sites, as well as interview locals to gain additional knowledge. The United States also continues to obtain access to historical wartime records and archives that provide information relevant to the fates of missing Americans.

To date, 982 Americans from the Vietnam War have been identified, with 689 of them from Vietnam, 257 from Laos, 33 from Cambodia, and 3 from China. There are 1,664 Americans still unaccounted for from the war.
