Documentary to feature Scannon, ’76, and Project Recover’s efforts to bring home the remains of the MIA

Dr. Patrick Scannon, an Augusta native and 1976 Medical College of Georgia graduate, has been described by CBS News as “one part Indiana Jones, one part historian and one part patriot.” A documentary showcasing the efforts of his non-profit Project Recover is set to release in theaters this week, coinciding with the 80th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. The one-day nationwide screening is Wednesday, Dec. 8.
Through the work of Dr. Scannon and others, soldiers classified as MIAs for decades can be accounted for, brought home and properly buried. The efforts of BentProp, now called Project Recover, have also been featured on TV’s 60 Minutes.
The Augusta screening begins at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Regal Augusta Exchange, 1144 Agerton Lane. To check showtimes and locations near you, please visit
