American experts identified the remains of two American servicemen who went missing in action during World War 2 (1939-1945) during a preliminary examination in Ho Chi Minh City on June 17.
If the findings prove accurate, this will be the first time the remains of US soldiers who went missing in action during WWII have been recovered in Vietnam.
According to preliminary results, the remains found in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang belong to two men who stood more than 1.8 meters (5 ft 11 in) high and were aged between 20 and 30 years old.
The American experts proposed to transfer the remains to Da Nang for further examination by both the Vietnamese and US sides before a DNA test is conducted in the United States.
During the World War 2, Japanese forces occupied Vietnam in 1940, restricting the French colonial administrators to figurehead authorities. Vietnam declared independence on September 2, 1945.
