Repatriation by USAF of US Prisoners of War from North Vietnam

Following the Paris Peace Accords of January 1973, U.S. prisoners of war were returned during Operation Homecoming during February through April 1973. Operation Homecoming was a series of diplomatic negotiations that in January 1973 made possible the return of 591 American prisoners of war held by North Vietnam. On Feb. 12, 1973, three C-141 transports flew to Hanoi, North Vietnam, and one C-9A aircraft was sent to Saigon, South Vietnam to pick up released prisoners of war. The first flight of 40 U.S. prisoners of war left Hanoi in a C-141A, later known as the 'Hanoi Taxi' and now in a museum. From February 12 to April 4, there were many C-141 missions flying out of Hanoi, bringing the former PoWs home.

During the early part of Operation Homecoming, groups of PoWs released were selected on the basis of longest length of time in prison. The first group had spent 6-8 years as prisoners of war.

The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines each had liaison officers dedicated to prepare for the return of American PoWs well in advance of their actual return. These liaison officers worked behind the scenes traveling around the United States assuring the returnees' well being. They also were responsible for debriefing PoWs to discern relevant intelligence about MIAs and to discern the existence of war crimes committed against them.

Numbers have been contested over the years, but the initial official account is that during Operation Homecoming, 591 PoWs were released to U.S. authorities; this included a few captured in Laos and released in North Vietnam. U.S. President Richard Nixon announced that all U.S. servicemen taken prisoner had been accounted for. At that time, the U.S. listed 2,646 Americans as unaccounted for, including about 1,350 prisoners of war or missing in action and roughly 1,200 reported killed in action and body not recovered. The low numbers of returnees from Laos caused some immediate concern, as previous Pentagon estimates were as high as 41 for prisoners held there, although only a few had been known to be captured for certain.

Operation Homecoming usually involving flights into the Hanoi area to embark the PoWs for onward flight (normally) to Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines, where personnel were provided medical and other services. 

Medical staff were also onboard all flights.

After a few days at Clark AFB, personnel were flown to the USA where they could be reunited with their families, and receive further medical and other services.

Service people who died in captivity were returned to US soil in separate operations, as described in a first-person account provided by  Major John 'Jack' O'Conner in his moving story 'They had touched our heroes for the last time'.
