The Defense Prisoner of War / Missing Persons Office (DPMO) announced as of June 1, 2013, the remains of PFC Manley Forest Winkley had been recovered from Betio, Tarawa Atoll, and positively identified.
Winkley was born September 17, 1923, and was serving with Company B, First Battalion, 2nd Marines when he was killed. He will be buried in Marion, Indiana with full military honors on August 24 of this year.
Thanks to commenter T. F. for the heads up.
(Note: In dishearteningly familiar DPMO fashion, the release misspells Winkley’s name, misidentifies his unit, and gets the date of death wrong in their release. More important is the fact that this young man is headed home where he belongs.)
