Remains Of 55 American Servicemen Were Flown Out Of North Korea Today


New York Times: Remains of U.S. War Dead in North Korea Start Journey Home After 65 Years

PYEONGTAEK, South Korea — Remains believed to be those of about 50 American servicemen were flown out of North Korea on Friday, the first visible result of President Trump’s efforts to bring the American war dead home 65 years after the end of combat in the Korean War.

“We are encouraged by North Korea’s actions and the momentum for positive change,” the White House said in announcing the handover.

An American Air Force C-17 Globemaster cargo plane carrying the remains landed later at Osan Air Base south of Seoul, the South Korean capital. Hundreds of American service members as well as a military honor guard lined up on the tarmac to mark the return of the fallen soldiers.

From Osan Air Base, the remains will be transferred to the Hawaii-based Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, where painstaking forensic work will be carried out to identify them. Remains that were returned in the past from North Korea were found to be mixed with those of unidentified individuals and even with animal bones.

WNU Editor: Here is an easy prediction .... this is going to be the first of many transfers.

The N. Koreans have done it again. We don't know what we got and won't for years. Next NK will present us with a bill (like last time) which we will pay. NK looks helpful and the US looks like saps. Fantastic foreign policy coup for Trump.

Hardly a loser but we are talking here about dead Americans and you need to be childish and make a remark that is out of place...
You do not like Mueller investigation? ok. express yourself in the appropriate place.
this issue is for most sensible people important and a closure hoped for, no matter what our party or affiliation.
if you can not understand that, then just slink away

Dude. Fred actually fought in that war, if I'm not mistaken. I don't know about you, I certainly disagree with Fred sometimes, but this ain't the place. Servicemen who paid the ultimate price coming home. Think about it.
