PVT Emil Francesco Ragucci, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, was reported “Killed in Action” by gunshot wounds on 20 November 1943, during the Battle of Tarawa. The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation provided PVT Ragucci’s family with reports in 2013 and 2015 after acquiring information and technologies not available at JPAC which refined and updated previous investigations. The Foundation submitted a report requested by DPAA that associated PVT Ragucci's burial at a specific location on Tarawa, which was precisely identified. PVT Ragucci’s identification was announced as a field recovery on Tarawa by the Department of Defense on 4 December 2017.
