Better relations with Vietnam help in search for remains
Defense Secretary William Cohen was in Vietnam last week to promote joint U.S.-Vietnamese efforts to recover and repatriate remains of Americans.
An estimated 2,000 U.S. servicemen are still missing in Vietnam.
The effort is the main foundation upon which Washington and Hanoi are attempting to build a military-to-military relationship a generation after the United States withdrew from Vietnam in defeat in 1975.
At least 10 of the soldiers still missing in action are from the Tristate.
