On Thursday, President Donald J. Trump made a big announcement. He identified the names of two U.S. soldiers who had served in the Korean War, and whose remains were recently returned to the U.S.

Over two posts, Trump tweeted: Army Master Sgt. Charles H. McDaniel, 32, of Vernon, Indiana, and Army Pfc. William H. Jones, 19, of Nash County, North Carolina, are the first American remains from North Korea to be identified as a result of my Summit with Chairman Kim. These HEROES are home, they may Rest In Peace, and hopefully their families can have closure.

The long-sought remains come after Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June. In July, the North Korean government returned human remains in 55 boxes, believed to be Americans. The contents are currently under analysis for identification.
