MIAs in Limbo-3

In this photo taken Monday, July 1, 2013 in Chapel Hill, N.C., Chris Tench holds a portrait of her and her husband Kenneth F. Reese, a soldier who is still Missing In Action from the Korean War. Tench, who was later remarried, has never known what happened to Reese. The Pentagon's effort to account for tens of thousands of Americans missing in action from foreign wars is so inept, mismanaged and wasteful that it risks descending from "dysfunction to total failure," according to an internal study suppressed by military officials.
