Continuing to be very happy to see more of our servicemen being recovered and identified. Emil was with the 2nd Platoon of Easy Co 2/2 with my father and in the same amtrac with their platoon leader, 2nd Lt Donald R. Dahlgren, who was also killed at Tarawa. Their story was written up and put on TOTW by Jon Stevens quite a few years ago from letters written in 1999 by PFC Lonnie E. Yancey who was with the men when both were killed in action. It is wonderful that their story is not forgotten and that Emil is coming home. To paraphrase Lincoln, we must take increased devotion to remembering ALL those that gave their last full measure of devotion for us. Never forget...
