- The "Returned Date" field is the date the individual's remains were returned to the United States
control. This date will be reflected only after a positive identification has been made.

This list of Korean War missing personnel was prepared by the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel
Please visit our web site at http://www.dtic.mil/dpmo for updates to this list and other official missing
personnel data lists.
Report Prepared: 10/17/00
The Army has some unidentified remains of service members from North Korea. Since DNA data was unknown in
the 1950s there was no profile on these personnel. The Army can now conduct DNA on the remains, but they
have an incomplete database of DNA form close family members with which to compare. There are several on
the list for your state and some may be from your county. Please look at the list and see if any from you
county are annotated with needing DNA "Yes". If find one, look under DNA and see what relative is acceptable.
Then find a relative in you area that meets this criterion and send their name, address or phone number to
the following contact at Department of the Army. There is not guarantee that the missing service member
from your county will be found, but thru DNA testing the Army can confirm or eliminate him as a name for the
remains that they have.
This is an important service that we can provide to our fellow citizens. We owe this much to our service
members who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country and in the name of freedom. Let us
resolve to get all of these needed DNA for our state submitted.
Steps to follow:
1. Look at the state List and find people from your county
2. copy and paste the service member name or jot it down on paper so that you use the same spelling when
you go to the DNA database.
3. Go to DNA database and see if they need DNA, if not then the Army has what data they need. If they need
DNA then you need to find a good
4. Look under DNA on one of the pages and it will tell you what is acceptable.
5. Develop a list of siblings, offsprings etc with addresses/phone number and send them to the e-mail
address or call them into the 1-800 number.
6. The Army has its own procedure for following up and getting the DNA samples.
