Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

'MIA: That the Lost may be Found' by Mr. Mark J Reichman reveals the adventures of Mark Reichman and his family who searched the jungles of Papua New Guinea for WWII crash sites. After finding eight Japanese, two US and four Australian airplanes, they discovered the missing RAAF Lockheed Hudson A16-126 in May of 2008. The account is now available on Amazon in print and e-book. Also available online through Barnes and Noble and Tower Books. The book is in stores at The Pacific Aviation Museum and Logos Bookstore in Honolulu, HI.

Working alongside the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force), a search was conducted for the remains of the missing four-man crew. Channel Ten News covered the story and the segment is available on YouTube and was featured in the RAAF Air Force News.

Three years later, Reichman accompanied grateful family members to the locations where their loved ones had perished.

With over 86,000 US and Australian military personnel still missing from various wars, this story touches the hearts of many as it gives hope to thousands who are carrying the pain for those who went to war and never returned.

The book also gives insight into what governments and amateur historians are doing towards the honorable endeavor of finding our war heroes who are still missing in action.

Peter Stone, author of 'Hostages to Freedom, the Fall of Rabaul', thoroughly enjoyed this easy, interesting read. "My initial reaction is Wow!!!" Stone said. "Mark had a great story to tell and he told it well."

Burl Burlingame, author of 'Advance Force - Pearl Harbor' and curator of the Pacific Aviation Museum said, "Reichman's humorous, modest account of his family's adventures in aviation wreck finding is fascinating and well-paced, and a little humbling as well."
