Korean War remains returned

Vice President Mike Pence, Indo-Pacific Commander U.S. Navy Adm. Phil Davidson and Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) deputy director Rear Adm. Jon Kreitz render salutes during an honorable carry ceremony at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH), Aug. 1. Carry teams moved 55 transfer cases, containing what are believed to be the remains of American service members lost in the Korean War, to the DPAA facility at JBPHH for identification. North Korea recently turned over the remains to the U.S. This is the first mass turnover of remains since the early ’90s.
