Pentagon: Remains of US POW from Korean War identified By ASSOCIATED PRESS Published: September 4, 2018 NEW YORK — U.S. military officials say the remains of a missing New York soldier who died during the Korean War more than 60 years ago have been identified. The Pentagon's Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced Tuesday that 1st Lt. Herman L. Falk's remains were identified last month using DNA analysis, dental records and material evidence. DPAA says the 22-year-old from Manhattan was serving in the Army's 2nd Infantry Division when he and other members of his platoon were reported missing during fighting in South Korea in February 1951. Officials say after the war returning American POWs reported Falk had died that spring at a POW camp in North Korea. Falk's remains were among those of at least 400 U.S. servicemen handed over by the North Koreans from 1990-94.

Some Advice On Trouble-free Methods Of
Complicating things further, the intermingled bones have often been handed over without any personal effects that might have been found with them, or any explanation of where they were found — erasing some of the primary clues the agency uses for identification. As a result, only 181 of the roughly 450 sets of remains returned by North Korea in past years have ever been identified, and many of them were not Americans. The rest sit in storage. Officials at the accounting agency said on Wednesday that the new batch of remains appeared to be in a similar state of disarray. Still, Mr. Trump thanked Mr. Kim early Thursday for “starting the process of sending home the remains,” adding that he “looks forward” to seeing the North Korean leader soon. The fast-moving battle lines of the Korean War seesawed hundreds of miles up and down the peninsula, and many battlefields wound up behind communist lines when the fighting ended in an armistice in 1953. Some 7,800 Americans are unaccounted for from the war, with 5,300 of them believed to be in North Korea.
