Carmen Carrillo was accounted for on February 3, 2023, while Army Master Sgt. Merritt L. Wynn was accounted for on August 26, 2022.

Wynn was part of the Americans sent in 55 boxes North Korean leader Kin Jong Un gave to President Trump in 2018. The remains in the boxes were believed to contain remains of American service members killed during the Korean War. Though they were sent to an agency lab at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickman for identification in 2018.

According to Army Times,

Wynn was a member of K Company, 3rd Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division in late 1950.
