There was a bit of good news Thursday after President Trump announced that two of the 55 sets of Korean War remains returned by the North were identified. The remains were those of Army Master Sergeant Charles McDaniel and Army Private First Class Williams Jones. The identification of the remains would surely bring closure to their families.
“The White House today released the names of two American soldiers whose remains were among those handed over by North Korea in July,” reported CBS anchor Jeff Glor. “Private First Class William Jones of North Carolina was 19 years old when he was killed in 1950. Master Sergeant Charles McDaniel was 32. McDaniel’s dog tag was presented to his sons in August.”
“The remains were identified at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam in Hawaii,” Muir added.
Meanwhile, on Fox News Channel’s Special Report, correspondent Greg Palkot reported that the United States and North Korea were making plans to search parts of the country for more remains. “We will never relent in our effort to bring our missing fallen home,” Vice President Mike Pence declared at the Korean War Memorial in D.C.
