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.
