The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War are back on U.S. soil following an emotional ceremony in Hawaii.
Vice President Mike Pence presided over the return of the remains.
Members of the U.S. military carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off C-17 aircraft and into a hangar at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
The U.S. military will take the remains to a laboratory at the base for identification.
The remains are expected to mostly be American, though may also include servicemen from other United Nations member nations who fought alongside the U.S. in support of South Korea during the war.
The boxes are believed to hold the remains of servicemen from the U.S. and other United Nations member countries who fought to support South Korea during the war.
North Korea handed over the remains last week.
