I think this work is not appreciated enough. So many soldiers still missing and families unaware what happened.

For instance Finland is still searching by little groups from known combat places in the Russian area ( most battle places were in the USSR area and not until 1992 was it possible to search the remains of the Finnish soldiers ) and some 1,100 remains have been found so far and 300 have been identified out of some 13,000 MIA of Finnish soldiers 1992-2009. The work still continues but the findings seem to be less and less.
