Going to ad my thoughts on this: it was good that the President helped to expedite these remains, hoping that several families will have closure. Now, I wish that he could persuade the DPAA and whoever to approve the disinternment of a set of remains buried in Section H, Grave 259 at the National Cemetery in Hawaii. These remains were found in 1961 scattered on a hilltop, went to the lab, partially identified and then flown to Hawaii from Japan for burial in 1964. They are probably my Uncle...the wheels turn slow 432 days since I submitted my request to the DPAA along with a File with my Uncle's name in it on the set of remains dating back to when they were found. At a family briefing last February in Jacksonville, Florida I met with a doctor from the DPAA and my caseworker. They wondered where I got the file.....got my sources.

The DPAA just handed over a set of Dog Tags belonging to one fallen soldier to the family today from those returned.

Markie, keep your mission alive. I am a Vietnam Vet also and you know how the VA has treated us. You just have to stay focused on it and donít let it die. Good luck.

Fifty five remains is a good start, but more than 35,000 Americans died on the Korean Peninsula during that war. Of those, 7,700 are still listed as missing in action, with 5,300 believed to be on North Korean soil.

Keep up the good fight Markie.

On remains from the Korean War, so many lie buried at the National Cemetery in Hawaii in Unknown graves. I know several families who have fought to get their loved ones remains disinterred and identified. I have been to three family briefings, got three folders with about the same information in them. The family briefings are more of a pacification for the families. When you go to the briefings and look around the room the average age of those family members are about 65 plus. Hoping that the returning of these remains brings hope for others.

I know how the VA is, I don't go there....Don't worry, I stay focused on what my ultimate goal is. To be handed that American Flag....
