"It's a huge battle", said Jin, who estimated that 1,700 of the missing US forces from the war came from that fight alone.

Two more USA service members have been identified from the 55 boxes of war remains that North Korea returned in July, officials said Monday.

According to estimates from the Department of Defense, there are approximately 7,700 USA troops who remain missing from the Korean War.

The condition of some of the remains is decidedly better than that of others.

The U.S. military also said that about 5,300 troops were lost during this war in what is now referred to as North Korea. One set was identified as a tall black American.

Between 1996 and 2005, the USA worked with North Korea and recovered around 400 caskets of remains, though Washington halted the cooperation in 2005 as it could not guarantee the safety of its personnel.

The identities of the two sets of remains were confirmed through a DNA sample, chest X-rays and dental records, Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency Chief Scientist John Byrd told the Military Times. Despite setbacks in the nuclear negotiations, North Korea has maintained its moratorium on weapons testing, has toned down its rhetoric, and attempted to downplay the threatening nature of its arsenal, as was evidenced by its decision not to feature ICBMs in its most recent military parade.

She spoke above tables of bone fragments, still separated with numbers corresponding with the 55 boxes. Her grandfather, now 90, is a survivor of the war who came from one of the areas of present-day North Korea that saw some of the heaviest fighting.

On Monday, the Pentagon said United Nations military officials met with North Korean counterparts last week to discuss the repatriation of additional remains.

The two sides remain technically at war because a peace treaty was never signed.
