THIS A MEMORIAL GRAVE FOR 1st Sgt QUINN, NOT AN ACTUAL BURIAL SITE.

1st SGT David Harvey Quinn, U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, C Company, 2nd Amphibious Tractor Battalion, was reported “Killed in Action” by shrapnel wounds on 20 November 1943, during the Battle of Tarawa. While at JPAC in 2011/2012, Chief Rick Stone prepared reports which listed 1st SGT Quinn as a Most Likely Match to four “Unknowns” buried in the Punchbowl. The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation later provided 1st SGT Quinn’s family with reports in 2013 and 2016 after acquiring information and technologies not available at JPAC which refined and updated the original investigations. The Foundation listed 1st SGT Quinn as a “Most Likely Match” to only two unknowns in the Punchbowl. 1st SGT Quinn’s identification was announced on social media and confirmed as a Punchbowl "Unknown" by the Department of Defense on 29 November 2017.
