Operation Glory was the code name for Operations Plan KCZ-OPS 14-54 which involved the effort to transfer the remains of United Nations Command casualties from North Korea at the end of the Korean War. The Korean Armistice Agreement of July 1953 called for the repatriation of all casualties and prisoners of war, and through September and October 1954 the Graves Registration Service Command received the remains of approximately 4,000 United Nations Command casualties. Public ceremonies involving delivery of the returned remains included honor guards. Some of the remains came from temporary cemeteries in North Korea that had been abandoned as Chinese forces pushed UN forces out of North Korea. Also exchanged were the remains of approximately 14,000 North Korean and Chinese casualties.
