The U.S. has so far identified two service members among the 55 boxes of remains returned by North Korea this summer, officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accountability Agency told The Wall Street Journal, and their names will be announced soon. Both service members died in late 1950 near the Chongchon River, in present-day North Korea, where the U.S. suffered heavy casualties. Of the 55 boxes returned, 23 have been tested so far. The return of the remains followed the June 12 talks in Singapore between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The DPAA has family-reference DNA samplings for 92 percent of the 7,699 Korean War service members still missing.
