Cool Remains of U.S. Servicemen Recovered in North Korea

Remains of U.S. Servicemen Recovered in North Korea

Remains believed to be those of four American soldiers missing in action from the
Korean War have been recovered by two teams of U.S. specialists.

A joint team operating near the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea recovered two sets
of remains believed to be those of U.S. Army soldiers from the 7th Infantry Division
who fought against Chinese forces from November-December 1950. Approximately 1,000
Americans are estimated to have been lost in battles of the Chosin campaign.

Additionally, a second team recovered two sets of remains in Unsan County, about 60
miles north of Pyongyang. This area was the site of battles between communist
forces and the U.S. Army's 1st Cavalry and 25th Infantry Divisions in November 1950.

The Defense Department's Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office negotiated terms
with the North Koreans in July, which led to the scheduling of two, month-long
operations this year. As a matter of policy, these recovery talks deal exclusively
with the issue of recovering the remains of missing Americans. POW/MIA accounting
is a separate, stand-alone humanitarian matter, not tied to any other issue. The
second operation will end on October 28, 2003 when these remains and others will be

The 28-person U.S. contingent was composed primarily of specialists from the Army's
Central Identification Laboratory, Hawaii.

Since 1996, 26 individual joint operations have been conducted in North Korea,
during which 182 sets of remains believed to be those of U.S. soldiers have been
recovered. Of the 88,000 U.S. servicemembers missing in action from all conflicts,
more than 8,100 are from the Korean War.

Roger I heard the same thing this morning.

Good News

Heard on the radio this morning that North Korea has found the remains of four US Korean Vets and that soon their remains will be determined.

Welcome Home Boy's it's been awhile but you'll soon be with your family and friends. Good Bless

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
