“His Lord said to him, Well done, you good and faithful servant…” Matthew 25:21.
PVT Charles Arvan Drew was reported “Missing in Action” on 20 November 1943 on Tarawa. In 2011/2012, Chief Rick Stone, while a member of the Department of Defense (DoD), investigated all of the Tarawa MIA’s and compared PVT Drew to 103 Tarawa “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl Cemetery. The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation researchers, using advanced law enforcement investigative techniques and sophisticated technologies not available to DoD or to government contractors paid millions to recover remains, continued to research PVT Drew’s case concluding that PVT Drew remained buried on Tarawa in an undiscovered grave. In May 2017, a previously unknown burial trench was discovered by a local resident on Tarawa while building a carport. PVT Drew was recovered from an unmarked grave at this site on Tarawa and his identification was officially announced on 28 September 2017. Welcome home Marine! We share the joy of your family in your return to honored repose at Arlington National Cemetery in June 2018! God Bless you and thanks to ALL who never forgot you and your service to our country!
