55 US Korean War Vets finally Home

Recommended Posts

:salute:

North Korea has turned over 55 cases of remains of American troops who died during the Korean War to the United States, which U.S. President Donald Trump got North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to promise to do after a historic, but controversial summit. It’s a positive step, but the U.S. government still has a lot of work to do to give the families of the fallen closure and make the most of this apparent diplomatic momentum.

The White House formally announced the repartition operation on July 26, 2018, though the remains arrived at Osan Air Base in South Korea via a U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III transport plane on July 27, 2018, local time. The transfer did appear intended to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice Agreement that ended the majority of the fighting on the Peninsula, which the North Korean government celebrates as a holiday called the "Day of Victory in the Great Fatherland Liberation War.”

That's the face value part the real part is the government will examine the remains and make a determination if they are indeed American. Could be boxes of anything, North Korean's, or Chairman Un pulling a fast one. Never know.

Well even though the boxes just contain remains of US soldiers, at least it is a positive step towards a peaceful solution to the problem of North Korea. :good:

Unfortunately there will have to be many, many more steps like this one to end the stalemate.
