Question about 4 years between death and burial??
By Julie April 20, 2007 at 06:15:35
One of my family members was in World War II.He joined in 1943 and was killed 23 February 1945.According to ancestry's database, he was buried on 16 February 1949 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
What would be the reasoning for a 4 year lapse?Maybe buried overseas and then brought back to the US for a burial?
I don't have a serial number for him... He was a Private First Class Marine Corps.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
