BentProp's Mission Statement:

BentProp is a team of volunteers, each with essential expertise (history, aviation, diving, navigation), who are dedicated to locating and assisting with identifying American prisoners of war and missing in action (POW/MIA) from World War Two in Western Pacific Islands. This effort is done through detailed research and exploration while consistently coordinating with appropriate national authorities.

To repatriate every American service member who has not come home. To provide information and closure to the families of these service members. To provide a platform to educate all on the importance of service to one’s country. To provide unique educational opportunities in the arenas of science, history, leadership and diplomacy to a select and committed student audience in conjunction with our missions in order to provide a real world application to the students and broaden the outlook of our team members.
