Advertiser Staff

A ceremony to honor remains believed to be those of six U.S. service members lost during the Korean War will take place at 11 a.m. Thursday inside Hangar 35 at Hickam Air Force Base.

The remains were turned over by North Korean officials to a U.S. delegation earlier this week. Following the ceremony, the remains will be transported to the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command at Hickam to undergo forensic identification.
