So far, 41 troops have been ID’d from remains returned by North Korea | Stars and Stripes

Dog tags and other items allowed at least 41 troops to be identified after Kim Jong Un sent their remains home, but scientists say they may need years to test the DNA of the other bones. One soldier, a member of the 7th Infantry Division, 31st Regimental Combat Team, was reported missing in 1950 and found among the remains. Soldiers who have been identified will be honored at burials and given rosettes next to their graves. More than 7,600 Americans went missing during the 1950-53 war, most of which likely ended up in North Korea. As DNA technologies grow and a new facility in Hawaii is utilized, more soldiers will be ID’d in the near future.
