S/Sgt James B. 'Dinty' Moore was a tail gunner on a B-24D bomber that went down in the jungles of New Guinea on November 20, 1943. The aircraft was located a few years later, but was in an 'unrecoverable' position where it would have been too dangerous to try to reach it. In 2003, sixty years later, with new technology and equipment, the aircraft was recovered. The remains of the entire crew were all positively identified through DNA at the Army's Central Identification Lab in Hawaii, where the remains had been taken. Finally, on August 12, 2009 Sgt. Moore made it home. He was initially buried in Calvary Cemetery in Woburn, MA. and was reinterred on March 24, 2011 to Arlington National in a group grave with some of the others he perished with. His name has not yet been added to the monument.
