U.S. officials have sent what are believed to be the remains of an American serviceman killed during the Vietnam War to the United States for identification.
Spokesman Ron Ward of the U.S. Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command detachment in Hanoi said Tuesday that the remains were recovered in the past month in southern Binh Phuoc province near the Cambodian border. They are believed to be those of a serviceman killed in a plane crash.
A repatriation ceremony took place Monday at Danang International Airport.
According to the U.S. office, since the war ended in 1975, 684 sets of remains have been repatriated from Vietnam. Another 1,678 U.S. servicemen are still unaccounted for throughout Southeast Asia, 1,287 of those in Vietnam.
