JESS TIFFANY AMERICAN JOURNEY

Jesse Tiffany American Journey
Supporting
 
The Jesse Tiffany American Journey is a way to give back to our community as Jesse travels from California to the Florida Keys. He will hit some interesting points of interest, all along meeting some of the wonderful people in this great Nation. Jesse is riding to support the Project Recover mission to find and repatriate the over 81,000 United States of America Missing in Action from all the conflicts through out the world. One of many Missing in Action they assisted was World War II Army Air Corps Second Lieutenant Lowell S. Twedt who was missing in action after his plane crashed in the mountain in Italy 75 years ago.  
 
 
So, while Jesse is traveling across American we are accepting donations for Project Recover. We have people sending in checks to the post or donating through our PayPal account (DONATE ). We will present Project Recover a check of all the donations at our VFW Silver State Post 3396 80th Birthday Dinner, Friday, May 14th, 2021 at the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks Nevada (Dinner ticket information).

As of March 25, 2021: The Journey since I left Nevada on February 1, 2021, I've been on one heck of a journey for ProjectRecover. I’ve rode through snow, hail, wind, extreme rain, a sand storm, Tornados and had my bike damaged in an accident (while I was parked), but that’s all part of the ride.

I’ve was able to get a bottle of sand from Morro Bay Ca, Pass Christian Ms and Key West Fl. The significance of this will be shared later when I return. I’ve visited several military memorials along my route, in California, Arizona, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and other states. While in New Orleans I visited the National World War II museum. The USS Alabama Battleship and USS Drum Memorial site,  the VFW Veterans Village in Fort McCoy Florida for retired veterans and their families(a privately owned and operated facility). I visited the Mighty 8th Air Force Museum in Georgia on Tuesday March 23. I’m on my way to several other important sites this week.
 
Along the way I’ve spoken to numerous people at VFW halls about our MIA/POWs and handed out ProjectRecover literature and VFW Post 3396 chips.
 
To my surprise very few folks if any knew how many Missing in Action are still unaccounted. It’s disheartening, I hope I am bringing some awareness to this and to what ProjectRecover mission dose for the families.
 
Some interviews you can see on the YouTube page is several World War II Veterans, A Vietnam Veteran who was a Prisoner of War for 15month, a very touching interview. I was fortunate to meet the daughter of a Three Purple Heart Veteran who created the " Purple Heart Highway" program in the United States of America. 
 
Stay Tuned for more updates.

WHAT IS PROJECT RECOVER:

Project Recover is a collaborative effort to enlist 21st-century science and technology in a quest to find and repatriate Americans missing in action since World War II, in order to provide recognition and closure for families and the Nation.

Formerly known as The BentProp Project, Project Recover began as Dr. Pat Scannon’s vision to bring MIAs home from Palau in 1993. Since then the organization  has grown into a team of dedicated professionals and volunteers.

Working in full cooperation with host nations and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA), Project Recover has helped repatriate 14 MIAs. Project Recover has located more than 50 US World War II aircraft. Thirty of the aircraft are associated with 100+ MIAs from missions around the globe. There are 87 MIAs awaiting recovery as a result of Project Recover's work.
