THEY ARE NOW RESPONSIBLE FOR TARAWA'S UNRECOVERED DEAD


New DPAA rules require that their labs have the capacity to process any
remains removed from official graves within 2 years of their recovery.


THE UNIDENTIFIED TARAWA REMAINS FROM THE PUNCH BOWL CEMETERY HAVE ALREADY BEEN EXHUMED

Thus the Tarawa remains from the Punch Bowl Cemetery are now on that two-year timeline.
