There are a couple references of him in books by Eric Hammel and John Lane about the invasion of Tarawa. Use the Google search engine with his name and then go to Books.

I sent you a couple emails last night, but I thought I would add this here, as other members might know something based off the photo. He was buried at sea less than 1.5km from the reef bordering the lagoon, approximately 5km from the northern tip of Betio. Coordinates taken from his casualty card and input into Google Earth

Some of this, I already had compiled from my own searches & family genealogy but some I was very interested to note. I do have some letters from my Uncle Johnny (as well as a couple other brothers) that my dad was able to give me many years ago. They were very interesting to read. I miss ink to paper communications, it's a lost art form!
