VP Pence welcomes home remains of Korean War casualties

PENCE WELCOMES HOME REMAINS OF AMERICANS KILLED IN KOREAN WAR: Vice President Mike Pence yesterday (August 1st) welcomed home the remains of dozens of presumed U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean War that were returned by North Korea last week, fulfilling a commitment made by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during his June summit with President Trump. The U.S. military believes the 55 cases of remains are those of U.S. servicemen and potentially servicemen from other United Nations member countries who fought in Korea, but an exhaustive analysis and identification process will have to be done. During the ceremony in Hawaii, Pence said, "Some have called the Korean War the 'forgotten war.' But today, we prove these heroes were never forgotten. Today, our boys are coming home." Each container was accompanied by one Marine, one sailor, one soldier and one airman, as they were removed from a plane and lined up inside a hangar as Pence stood watching with his hand over his heart.
