The Final Return

The Korean War cease fire occurred 35 years ago, but for many, the war never ended.

For almost 300 families, the end of hostilities didn’t bring their loved ones home, but for some, the recent summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may bring some closure.

Some 250 caskets have just been sent to North Korea to facilitate the transport of remains of American servicemen killed during the conflict.

“And I understand … that they’ve already sent back or are in the process of sending back the remains of our great heroes who died in North Korea during the war,” Trump said at a Cabinet meeting.

Previously, US and North Korean recovery teams had located 229 sets of remains but the return of these remains had stalled until the summit earlier this month when arrangements were finally made.

Welcome home, soldiers, your families and your country thank you for your ultimate sacrifice.
