    The United States did not give money to North Korea in exchange for the recovery and return of the remains of US soldiers, killed during the Korean War of 1950-1953, US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said. "US code grants the secretary of defense the authority to reimburse the DPRK, or any other country, for expenses associated with the recovery and storage of remains. In this instance, North Korea did not ask for money and no money was exchanged," US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told the CNN broadcaster. On Friday, a US airplane carried the remains of US soldiers...

    SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea is expected to hand over the remains of a number of U.S. service members who were killed during the Korean War on Friday, the 65th anniversary of the armistice that ended the fighting, according to reports in South Korean media. If the exchange happens, it would mean that one part of the agreement reached between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12 had been partially fulfilled - albeit at a slower time frame than many had anticipated. Yonhap News agency reported on Thursday that North Korea...

    North Korea will return the remains of about 50 Americans killed during the Korean War over the next two weeks, the first set of repatriations since the recent summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, a report says. A senior U.S. defense official said on Tuesday that the move will take place within two weeks, though the exact timing and number of those being returned remain uncertain, according to a Reuters report. The development comes after a two-day meeting between U.S. and North Korean officials at the Demilitarized Zone. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the beginning of...

    I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention. But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit. I was present for everything that transpired in our house before, during, and after the alleged event. Now that the public hysteria of earlier this year has died down a little and I have some hope that the truth can get a fair hearing, I want to share my story.

    The United States and North Korea have agreed to search for the remains of 5,300 U.S. soldiers who died in the Korean War and whose bodies were never recovered, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement Sunday. The statement was issued after “the first general officer-level talks” between the two countries since 2009. “Today’s talks were productive and cooperative and resulted in firm commitments,” Pompeo said. Officials will hold further meetings Monday “to coordinate the next steps, including the transfer of remains already collected,” he said. The weekend talks were held in the demilitarized zone between North and...

    U.S. military officials were left in the lurch last Thursday when North Korean representatives simply failed to show up for a meeting on recovering and repatriating the remains of the U.S. troops killed during the Korean War, the Washington Post reports. According to the Post, officials from the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and representatives from United Nations Command were left waiting in the Joint Security Area of the Korean Peninsula’s demilitarized zone on July 12, although it is unclear why the North Korean counterparts failed to attend. “We were ready,” according to one anonymous official who spoke to the Post....

    Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!

    Miami Herald ^ | February 27, 2018 | Tarpley Hitt
    A married couple last week admitted to using the lounge in an operation that stole millions of dollars, using shadow bank accounts to loot funds intended for Miami-Dade’s Aviation Department. Former Club America account manager Elena Iglesias, and her contractor husband, Lazaro Iglesias, pleaded guilty to organized fraud, grand theft, and two counts of money laundering. After they surrender next month, they’ll each serve three years in prison and have to pay $2.6 million in restitution. Once out, they’ll be placed on 10 years of probation.

    The casket sat at the front of the chapel, wrapped with an American flag, containing the remains of a soldier who had died seven decades earlier. It had taken a long time to find Army Pfc. Lonnie B.C. Eichelberger - who enlisted at age 16 and died in World War II at age 20 - but the military had found him. And now, under a gray Texas sky, he was going to be buried in home soil. Descendants could feel a sense of closure. The mantra of "no soldier left behind" was going to feel true.Soft music played through...

    Memorial Day is a time for remembrance. Many think of the ones who have died in combat, but a forgotten group is the Missing In Action. On this solemn day Americans should think about those who never came home, with their families left in limbo. Thankfully, there is one group whose sole purpose is to account for the ones who fought for this country, but never returned home. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency’s mission is to find many of the missing from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC) told American Thinker of...

    The United States on Tuesday said it has successfully located remains of the country's servicemen who went missing in Arunachal Pradesh during World War II. A Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) team carried out works on sites in the Himalayas where US aircrafts are believed to have crashed with still unaccounted for servicemen. The team visited several locations in Arunachal Pradesh to determine if the reported sites can be definitively correlated with known crash sites involving missing US servicemen. "The United States is committed to making sure all the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who served our country come home....

    It's reasonable to ask, why is the Clinton Foundation missing from the Democrat National Convention? Every speaker tells us that Hillary has devoted her entire life to helping children. It seemed to me if Hillary did any such thing, then over the last ten years or so we'd see Mrs. Clinton featured with children's charities - then it dawned on me. Everyone keeps saying she cares deeply about the less fortunate. This has been her life's work. But where is it? Maybe I missed some people who said they were helped, but that Jumbotron and stage should be filled with...

It is an account of the sacrifice he made to his country, to his comrades, and to the Vietnamese people.

Hunt was with ODA-322 at Camp Suoi DA, and I was assigned to ODA-323 at Camp Trai Bi. Our camps were about 30...

    Rep. Mia Love was a rising star two years ago when she became the first black Republican woman ever elected to Congress — as well as a symbol of the more diverse, inclusive party that GOP leaders said they needed to build. (SNIP) He lost to Love by just more than 4,000 votes in 2014, picking up a significant number of crossover votes, even though many Democrats had written off the conservative district after longtime Rep. Jim Matheson retired.
