The Vietnam Office for Seeking Missing Persons (VNOSMP) on October 17 handed over remains of US servicemen missing in action during the war in Viet Nam to the US.

The handover ceremony was held at Da Nang airport in central Da Nang city, with the participation of representatives from the US MIA Office in Ha Noi.

The four sets of remains were found by joint search teams during the 138th and 143rd Joint Field Activities from April 2020 to July 2021.

The remains had been jointly examined by Vietnamese and US forensic specialists in Ha Noi. The specialists concluded that they might be associated with US servicemen missing during the war in Viet Nam and recommended bringing them to Hawaii, the US, for further verification.

The search for remains of US servicemen missing during the war in Viet Nam is a humanitarian activity between the Vietnamese and US Governments.

This is the 156th handover of remains of US missing servicemen since 1973.
