The CUD granted Hall leave from May 2021 to January 2022 to help locate the remains of American armed forces personnel who perished in the line of duty.

She is using the expertise in mapping and data collection that she employs as geographic information systems coordinator with CUD to scour 20th-century battlefields in Asia and the Pacific.

Hall is a drone pilot with a Federal Aviation Administration certification, a skill that also could come in handy in her work at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Oahu.
