Missing in Action Profile

+3 votes
I would like to identify military personnel as Missing in Action on their profile page, but I have not been able to figure out how to do that.  I began by looking for assistance on this page https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:MilitaryHelp-Missing_in_Action#Adding_the_Profile_to_the_Roll_of_Honor

I scrolled down the page and found a template that was supposed to be inserted into the  Missing in Action Page:  https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Space:Missing_in_Action&public=1

It soon became to my attention that there are more lines in the template than what is actually supposed to be added to the page.    Also, it did not automatically put the name in alphabetical order, which it states will happen on that page, so I corrected that by moving the entry into the proper space.

But, here is my real question about this Missing In Action Page.  I had presumed that this was for military personnel who are Missing in Action.....still.  But, I clicked on two of the names in that list, from the Vietnam Conflict, and they came up as having been returned to the US. So, they are NOT Missing in Action.  Here is one, for instance:  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Cavaiani-2

So, I'm very confused by this.  Is there a page devoted only to those casualties that continue to be Missing in Action?

Also, is there some way for me to add an emblem to the pages of military personnel who continue to be MIA?  Can someone kindly direct me to a page that will help me to accomplish this? I see emblems on profile pages, but cannot figure out how to do that myself.

I appreciate your direction and your patience.

Hello Barbara on the WikiTree Roll of Honor MIA is a Military person  who went missing during armed conflicts. Sometimes they are found after a number of years and sometimes they are still missing. We add both to the table. If you send me  a link to one of your profiles I can add a image to their profile for MIA. I will have a look at the MIA Sticker some no longer work properly since they changed from templates to Stickers Terry
Thank you! I’m out of town until Monday.

But the MIA in the family is Goempel-5   : Frederick Goempel.

Thanks so much for your help!
