WASHINGTON (News4Utah) – Nearly 7,700 US troops who fought in the Korean War remain missing and presumed killed in Action. 5,300 of those were lost in North Korea. As a result of President Trump’s meeting with North Korean President Kim Jong-Un, North Korea has reportedly promised to return some remains.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told lawmakers this week that he is “optimistic” that the U.S. will receive some remains “in the not-too-distant future.”
But, he added, “We have not yet physically received them.”
Drew Petrimoulx reports the U.S. military says it has moved 100 wooden coffins to the border between North and South Korea in preparation for a final homecoming for American soldiers.
