Iraq accounting shifts to DPMO
In November, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced that the responsibility to account for missing U.S. personnel in Iraq will transfer from the U.S. Central Command to DPMO on Dec.1, 2011. This change is a result of the ending military operations in Iraq. In accordance with the Missing Service Personnel Act, the current number of personnel missing from operations in Iraq is six  two service members from Desert Storm; and one service member and three DoD contractors from Iraqi Freedom.
