ĐÀ NẴNG – Việt Nam has repatriated remains believed to be of US soldiers who died during the Việt Nam War.
At a ceremony at Đà Nẵng International Airport on Sunday, Việt Nam handed over boxes containing two sets of remains, one set submitted by locals and the other found by a Việt Nam-US team during their 127th joint search between April and June 2017.
The remains have been examined by Vietnamese and American forensic specialists, who concluded they could belong to US servicemen who went missing during the war. They recommended the remains be brought back to Hawaii for further review.
The ceremony marked the 141st handover of missing American soldiers’ remains since 1973.
The previous repatriation was also held in Đà Nẵng in April, during which three sets of remains were transferred following a joint search between February and April this year. – VNS
