On this U.S. Holiday of Veterans Day we would like to place the spot light on Project Recover.
"Project Recover is a collaborative effort to enlist twenty-first-century science and technology in a quest to find the final underwater resting places of Americans missing in action since World War II."
In connection with Veterans’ Day, GoPro and CBS series “60 Minutes” profile World War II recovery effort by Scripps and partners. https://scripps.ucsd.edu/news/new-technology-enables-historic-finds
The Project Recovery website currently highlights a project in Palau searching for MIA using many technologies including Autodesk's Reality Capture solutions such as ReCap. Autodesk has been proud to be a partner in this project in the Pacific islands with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
Personally I have been so very fortunate to work with many veterans in 2014 including some from the Pearl Harbor WWII era, the many fine sailors and marines of the USS America, as well as supporting the efforts of the Wounded Warriors Project.
Everyday should be Veterans Day. A day or simple "Thank You" will never be enough.
Thank you veterans,
