Attending the ceremony, for the Vietnamese side, were representatives from the Board of Directors of Vietnam Office for Seeking Missing Personnel (VNOSMP), the Ministry of National Defence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and, for the US side, were US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel Kritenbrink and representatives from the US MIA Office in Ha Noi.

The Vietnamese side’s representatives handed over to the US side a set of remains which was recovered during the 139th Joint Field Activities from May 5 to June 23, 2020.

The set of remains had been unilaterally reviewed and concluded by Vietnamese forensic specialists that it might be associated with the US servicemen missing during the war in Vietnam and was recommended to bring to Hawaii, the US, for further review.
