Since 1995, our mission is to document World War II Pacific history, advocate for those still MIA (Missing In Action) and ensuring that wrecks are protected or preserved for future generations.

People from all over the world have contributed to this website, including veterans, relatives, historians, travelers, authors. If you have information or photographs related to this topic, Learn about how you can help this project.

My interest began with my grandfather, Carl R. Thien who was a US Army combat photographer in the Pacific.   In 1993, I traveled with him to the places he served and was amazed to see war relics still in situ across the Pacific.

Over the years, this website has been responsible for new wreck discoveries, solving historical mysteries and connecting people.

Pacific Wrecks has also been featured in several news articles and documentaries, including:
AP "Finding history: Web, vets help unearth war wrecks" October 2, 2010
Smithsonian Magazine "Swamp Ghosts" October 2007
PBS / NOVA Secrets of the Dead "Dogfight Over Guadalcanal" August 2006

Yours in history,

Justin Taylan
