ABOUT THE PROJECT
When 52 Americans were held by Iranians for 444 days beginning in 1979, the homefront was tied together with yellow ribbon bows around old oaks from Massachusetts Avenue in D.C. to the Pacific. It took political wrangling to try to bring the hostages home; it took people who didn’t forget about them to make it happen. The Yellow Ribbon Project is a portal to bring together the stories of those held or missing abroad. Readers can learn background and updates of ongoing cases, find out how to get involved, and even submit tips. You’ll hear from the families, lawmakers, government entities and more.
