The two United States service members, who were identified through DNA analysis and historical documents, are believed to have died in late 1950 in an area near the Chongchon River, where USA forces suffered heavy losses during the Korean War.

According to recent reports, on Monday, the USA military agency leading the analysis on bodies have confirmed that they have identified the remains of the first two American troops which were mixed together with other 55 boxes of other countries human remains which were obtained from the 1950 to 1953 Korean War which were handed over by the North Korea in the beginning of July.

The repatriation followed a summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, during which Kim agreed to send home some of America's war dead.

The condition of some of the remains is decidedly better than that of others.

Both service members died in late 1950 near the Chongchon River, in present-day North Korea, where the USA suffered heavy casualties, DPAA officials said.

The Pentagon estimates that of the approximately 7,700 U.S. MIAs from the Korean War, about 5,300 are unaccounted for on North Korean soil.

However, the sets of bones from the two soon-to-be-identified troops are far more complete. One set was identified as a tall black American.

Other tables included personal objects from soldiers that don't have any identification on them, including buttons, canteens and old boots.

"It's really personal to me", Jin said.

The Pentagon has said it is considering the possibility of sending personnel to North Korea to search for more remains.

A United Nations Command delegation led by US Air Force Major General Michael Minihan met with North Korean officials at Panmunjom Friday to discuss "military-to-military efforts to support any potential future return of remains", AFP reported Tuesday.

The two sides remain technically at war because a peace treaty was never signed.
