The White House has confirmed that North Korea has returned 55 cases of remains who died in the 1950-1953 Korean War - making good on a deal struck between President Trump and NK Leader Kim Jong Un.
Today is the 65th anniversary of the armistice that ended the fighting.
There are approximately 7,700 US servicemen still listed MIA from the war and this marks a beginning.
U.S. Forces Korea commander Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, in a statement from the U.N. Command, called the retrieval mission successful. "Now, we will prepare to honor our fallen before they continue on their journey home."
