PFC Arnold Junior Harrison, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, B Company, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, was reported “Killed in Action” by a gunshot wound to the head on his 20th birthday, 20 November 1943 during the Battle of Tarawa. While at JPAC in 2011/2012, Chief Rick Stone prepared reports which listed PFC Harrison as a Most Likely Match to five “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl. The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation later expanded 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 Harrison as a “Most Likely Match” to multiple "Unknowns". DPAA finally acted on Chief Stone’s original recommendations and began exhumation of the Tarawa “Unknowns” from the Punchbowl in October 2016. PFC Harrison was recovered from the Punchbowl and his identification was officially announced on 20 October 2017.
