Attending the Ceremony, for the Vietnamese side were Representatives from the Board of Directors of Vietnam Office for Seeking Missing Personnel (VNOSMP) and, for the US side were Consul General Mary Tarnowka in Ho Chi Minh City, representatives of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) and the US MIA Office in Hanoi.
The Vietnamese side’s representative handed over to the US side three boxes of remains which were recovered by joint and unilateral excavation teams during the 130th Joint Field Activities from February to April, 2018. The remains had been jointly reviewed and concluded by Vietnamese and US forensic specialists in Hanoi that they might be associated with the US servicemen missing during the war in Vietnam and were recommended to bring to Hawaii, United States, for further review.
Addressing at the Repatriation Ceremony, the US Government representative expressed deep gratitude and high appreciation for the steadfast humanitarian policy, good-will, the full and increasingly efficient cooperation of the Vietnamese Government and people.
The seeking of the remains of US servicemen missing during the war in Vietnam is humanitarian cooperation between the Vietnamese Government and the US Government. This is the 143rd hand-over of American missing servicemen’s remains since 1973.
