Dear Colleague:

You are invited to attend a meeting of the Korea Club on Thursday, March 9, 2017. The event will feature Col. Ashton Ormes, who will give a presentation entitled, "North Korea and the Mission to Account for America's Missing Korean War Servicemen."
 

Ashton Ormes is a retired U.S. Army colonel, a Northeast Asia Foreign Area Officer, and a former civilian member of the Defense Prisoner of War/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO).  He first became involved in the mission to account for America’s missing Korean War servicemen, and initiatives to win North Korean cooperation in this effort, while serving in the United Nations Command component of the Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC) in Panmunjom, Korea from 1986 to 1988.  Returning to Panmunjom from 1995 to 1997 as the UNCMAC Secretary, he participated in negotiations leading to joint US/DPRK operations in North Korea that began in 1996, ended in 2005, and recovered the remains of 229 missing men.  From 2000 to 2005, as the Director of Research and Analysis for DPMO, he took part in negotiations with North Korean representatives and traveled to North Korea six times to observe remains recovery operations in North and South Pyongan Provinces and in South Hamgyong Province.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Virginia Military Institute, a Master of Business Administration degree from Pepperdine University, and is a graduate of both the Republic of Korea Army College and the U.S. Army War College.
