PFC Ray James
Fri Jun 30, 2017 16:26

PFC Ray James, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines, was killed by gunshot wounds on 20 November 1943 on Tarawa. The Foundation received a request for a “Family Report” from PFC James’ family which was forwarded on 18 January 2016. Continued investigation by the Foundation uncovered additional information to update the report using the RISC System and listed PFC James as a most likely match to only two “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl. DPAA finally acted on Chief Stone's original recommendations and began exhumation of the "Unknowns" from the Punchbowl in October 2016. PFC James was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 20 June 2017.
