The US government has an unspoken pledge with every man and woman it sends into battle: you may be injured doing your duty, you may even be killed, but you won't be left behind. You WILL come home. At the end of the Vietnam War, the whereabouts of 2,583 US servicemen was unknown. Thirty years later, the search continues. Taking the reader deep into territory that is almost as hostile now as it was during the war, Where They Lay tells the amazing story of the soldiers and scientists whose job it is to find and identify the remains of the missing, and of their elusive employer, the world's largest forensic anthropology lab, the US Army's Central Identification Laboratory.
