Many "Sightings" (click above) of missing men referred to physical descriptions, numbers of men, possibly a unit name, a location, and an approximate date. What made a man memorable to others may have been his accent, home town or state, nickname, tattoo, red hair, etc.  The more we know, the more likely we are to recognize him in documents we find.
