North Korea Has More Remains Of U.S. Soldiers

North Korea has said they have more remains of U.S. soldiers to be returned.

The remains including bones, effects and a single dog tag were discovered recently Maj. Gen.
Pak Rim Su told Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico.

President of Korean War Veterans Association Bill MacSwain said he found the timing interesting that
it would come now. "I'm afraid it's more political than humanitarian,  they use our dead to further
their gains," he said. "But we need to bring them home."

More than 54,000 died in the war, and some 8,000 are still missing.

Once again I ask everyone to contact their elected officials and ask them to demand a full and accurate
accounting; and the return of all remains of the MIA from all wars. We should never forget
the sacrifice of these brave men and women.

It is a blot on our fine military, our veterans, our nation that so many are still unaccounted for. Bring
them home and give closure to the families of those who never returned.
