HONOLULU (AP) - Dozens of boxes of remains from the Korean War are on their way to Hawaii for analysis and identification.
    
The U.S. military believes the bones are those of U.S. servicemen and potentially servicemen from other United Nations member countries who fought alongside the U.S. on behalf of South Korea during the war.
    
U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and the commander of U.S. forces in Asia, Adm. Phil Davidson, are expected to speak at a ceremony on Wednesday. The event will mark the arrival of the remains on U.S. soil and the beginning of a long process to identify the bones.
    
North Korea handed over the remains last week. A U.S. military plane made a rare trip into North Korea to retrieve 55 cases.
