U.S. servicemen remains repatriated

Three boxes of the remains and personal effects of what is believed to be U.S. servicemen were handed over to U.S. officials at a ceremony at Danang International Airport March 3. At the ceremony were representatives from the Vietnam Office for Seeking Missing Persons (VNOSMP), the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC), and the US Embassy in Ha Noi. This was the 95th handover of missing American servicemen's remains since 1973, bringing the total number of repatriated MIA's remains to 829; it was also the 79th joint Vietnam-US search in northern Vietnam for MIA remains.
