SGT Elden William Grimm, U.S. Marine Corps, A Company, 1st Battalion, 18th Marines, was reported “Missing in Action” on 25 November 1943 during the Battle of Tarawa. While at JPAC in 2011/2012, Chief Rick Stone prepared reports which listed SGT Grimm as a Most Likely Match to six “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl. In April 2013, The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation responded to a request by SGT Grimm's family for a comprehensive "Family Report". 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 SGT Grimm as a “Most Likely Match” to only two "Unknowns". DPAA finally acted on Chief Stone’s original recommendations and began exhumation of the Tarawa “Unknowns” from the Punchbowl in October 2016. SGT Grimm was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 17 October 2017.
