PVT Joseph Carmine Carbone, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, K Company, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, was reported “Missing in Action” on 20 November 1943 during the Battle of Tarawa. The Foundation later refined the Tarawa investigations using information and technologies not available at JPAC, using the RISC System, to list PVT Carbone as a “Most Likely Match” to only one unknown buried in the Punchbowl. DPAA finally acted on Chief Rick Stone’s original recommendations and began exhumation of the “Unknowns” from the Punchbowl in October 2016. The Foundation later received a request for a “Family Report” from PVT Carbone’s family which was forwarded in 2017. PVT Carbone was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 17 July 2017.
