PFC Harold Vernon Thomas, U.S. Marine Corps, F Company, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines, was reported “Killed in Action” by gunshot wounds to the abdomen on 20 November 1943 during the Battle of Tarawa. While at JPAC in 2011/2012, Chief Rick Stone prepared reports which listed PFC Thomas as a Most Likely Match to three “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl. The Foundation later refined the Tarawa investigations completed by Chief Stone at the Department of Defense after acquiring information and technologies not available at JPAC. The Foundation, using the RISC System, listed PFC Thomas as a “Most Likely Match” to only one unknown in the Punchbowl. DPAA finally acted on Chief Stone’s original recommendations and began exhumation of the Tarawa “Unknowns” from the Punchbowl in October 2016. PFC Thomas was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 13 September 2017.
