State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) has announced the Ohio House of Representatives yesterday passed House Concurrent Resolution 15 to commemorate Operation Homecoming.


In 1973, amidst the Vietnam War, the Paris Peace Accords were signed, including a provision which permitted the exchange of prisoners of war. Between February 12 and April 4 of that same year, 591 American soldiers were transported by plane from Vietnam, Laos and China to Clark Air Base in the Philippines. Known as Operation Homecoming, the ex-prisoners of war were provided with health care, food and fresh clothing before being transported to the United States.


“It’s hard to imagine what our POWs went through during the Vietnam War,” Rep. Romanchuk said. “I’m glad that the House could commemorate the homecoming of so many of these brave members of the military with the passage of this resolution, and I thank them for their service.”


House Concurrent Resolution 15 passed with unanimous support and will now move to the Senate for consideration.
