American POW/MIAs in the Korean War: Searching for Answers and Recovering Remains
Following the end of hostilities of the Korean War in 1953, more than 7,000 U.S. personnel from that war were "unaccounted for," and 5,300 of those service members were believed to have been lost in North Korea. Efforts to locate and recover the remains of these prisoners of war and missing in action service members (POW/MIAs) have waxed and waned over the decades. Questions also remain about the fate of American prisoners of war in the immediate aftermath of the fighting.

Please join the National Committee on North Korea (NCNK) for a public webinar featuring Donna Knox, Richard Downes, and Mickey Bergman to examine these aspects of the Korean War POW/MIA issue. Among the topics to be covered will be the destination of American POWs taken off the Peninsula, as well as ongoing contemporary efforts to retrieve American POW/MIA remains from North Korea.

Featuring:

Donna Knox, Legislative and Policy Liaison, Coalition of Families of Korean and Cold War POW/MIAs

Richard Downes, President and Executive Director, Coalition of Families of Korean and Cold War POW/MIAs

Mickey Bergman, Vice President and Executive Director, The Richardson Center for Global Engagement

Moderated by:

Keith Luse, Executive Director, National Committee on North Korea

Nov 30, 2021 02:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
