77 Connecticut Military Still Unaccounted for From Korean War

One thing that could come from the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is a commitment to recover the remains of thousands of U.S. troops who remain unaccounted for from the Korean War and are presumed dead and send them back home. 

Of the early 7,800 U.S. troops who remain unaccounted for from the 1950-53 war, 77 are from Connecticut.

In a joint statement the two leaders signed, the countries committed to the recovery of the remains and the immediate repatriation of those already identified. 

The list from the U.S. Department of Defense says three Connecticut soldiers have been accounted for. 

The remains of Corporal James Lawrence Campbell were identified on May 10, 2016 and he was brought home in August 2016.

The remains of Pfc. Primo Charles Carnabuci were identified on Nov. 3, 2010 and the remains of Sgt. Lincoln Clifford May were identified on June 9, 2008.
