Hi, all.

History Flight is pleased to see that the DPAA has begun to exhume the burial locations of Tarawa unknowns in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, aka The Punchbowl. We weren't expecting them to begin until next year, but they just posted some photos on Facebook.

You can see the photos here: https://www.facebook.com/dodpaa/photos/?tab=album&album_id=983465215097273

This is a huge step forward in the ongoing project to recover and identify Tarawa's MIAs.

Incidentally, if anyone in the community is interested, we have started a Facebook group. To join just find Tarawa MIA Families on Facebook and request to become a member. https://www.facebook.com/groups/TarawaMIAFamilies/
