MAKRI was established in January 2007 with historical missions to recover and identify the Korean war missing servicemen.
MAKRI has recovered around 9,800 remains of ROK soldiers including UN forces and collected around 40,000 DNA samples from the bereaved family members. This has led to a successful identification of 128 ROK soldiers and 8 US soldiers and they were returned to their families.
KIA recovery project has contributed in enhancing international ties. Repatriating remains of the UN participant countries has promoted solid trust between ROK and its allies.
Repatriation of Chinese forces remains takes place every year as a humanitarian effort.
With its internationally recognized expertise,
MAKRI worked with Libyan authority to recover and identify Libyan missing personnel from the civil war and shared its expertise and experiences with Australia and Vietnam, thereby fostering national stature in the world.
