CPL Anthony George Guerriero, U.S. Marine Corps, B Company, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, was killed by a gunshot wound to the head on 21 November 1943 on Tarawa. In 2012, Chief Rick Stone while a member of the Department of Defense used the RISC System to list CPL Guerriero as a “Most Likely Match” to six unknowns buried in the Punchbowl. The Foundation later refined these investigations using information and technologies not available at JPAC to list CPL Guerriero as a “Most Likely Match” to only two unknowns. DPAA finally acted on Chief Stone’s original recommendations and began exhumation of the “Unknowns” from the Punchbowl in October 2016. CPL Guerriero was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 14 July 2017. CPL Guerriero was identified as one of the “Unknowns” for which Chief Stone had listed him as a “Most Likely Match” in one of his original reports to JPAC on March 15, 2012 and a one of only two "Unknowns" in later Foundation updates.
