The Vietnamese Government’s representatives handed over to the US side three sets of remains believed to be of American servicemen missing in action during the war in Vietnam.

The remains were found in the central provinces of Nghe An, Quang Binh and Thua Thien-Hue during the 133rd Joint Field Activities with the engagement of 76 US experts and over 200 Vietnamese people. They will then be brought to Hawaii, the US, for further review.

According to the US Ambassador to Vietnam, in addition to seeking the remains of American servicemen missing during the war, the US Government has coordinated with Vietnam in providing information on Vietnamese missing in action as well as in addressing dioxin-related problems at Bien Hoa and Da Nang airports, and clearing bombs and mines in the central province of Quang Tri.

2018 marks 30 years of Vietnam-US cooperation in searching for the remains of US servicemen who died during the war. The activity reflects the strong collaboration between the two countries in humanitarian issues.
