KUENTAI-USA was incorporated in April, 2014, to help retrieve the American soldiers who died on the Pacific battlefields.
KUENTAI-JAPAN has been working to retrieve Japanese soldiers for 9 years, and has recovered about 16,000 soldiers from the Philippines, and 750 soldiers from Saipan.
In addition, in the past 2 years, the group has found 5 American soldiers from Saipan and turned them over to JPAC (Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command) for identification testing.
KUENTAI-JAPAN has continuously visited DPMO and JPAC to discuss a way of accounting for the soldiers more effectively, but nothing has changed.
KUENTAI-JAPAN has also informed them that construction of a resort hotel is planned in fall 2014 at the possible burial site of American soldiers on Saipan. However, they said that "there is no budget".
Since the group noticed that the government lacks enthusiasm, and yet it is impossible to ignore this matter, KUENTAI-JAPAN decided to find a way to retrieve the American soldiers.
This is how KUENTAI-USA was begun.
The page had been temporarily deleted due to the claim by JPAC since July in 2014. But it is determined that the statement is fair enough to be open in our history page, so the page is back in November, 2014.
Thank you for your patience.
