    Default Missing WWII Soldiers are Identified

    the department of defense pow/missing personnel office (dpmo) announced today that the remains of two u.s. Servicemen, missing from world war ii, have been identified and will be returned to their families for burial with full military honors.

    They are pfc. Julian h. Rogers, of bloomington, ind, and pvt. Henry e. Marquez, of kansas city, kan. Both men were u.s. Army. Rogers will be buried in the spring in arlington national cemetery near washington, d.c., and marquez will be buried on may 30 in kansas city, mo.

    Representatives from the army’s mortuary office met with the next-of-kin of these men in their hometowns to explain the recovery and identification process and to coordinate interment with military honors on behalf of the secretary of the army.

    In november 1944, the 112th infantry regiment, 28th infantry division, was attacking east through the hürtgen forest in an attempt to capture the german towns of vossenack and schmidt. On nov. 4, the germans counterattacked in what would become one of the longest running battles in u.s. History. Rogers and marquez, both members of g company, 112th infantry regiment, were reported killed in action near vossenack on nov. 4. Their bodies were not recovered.

    In 2007, a german citizen searching for wartime relics in the hürtgen forest uncovered human remains and military identification tags for rogers and marquez. He notified u.s. Officials and a joint pow/mia accounting command (jpac) team excavated the site later that year. The team recovered human remains and non-biological material.

    Among dental records, other forensic identification tools and circumstantial evidence, scientists from jpac and the armed forces dna identification laboratory also used mitochondrial dna in the identification of the remains.

    Hope that gives some closure to any survovors after all this time.

    They will continue to find these guys for a long time.

    A few years ago a wreck on "the hump" was excavated and remains of a guy from my small hometown were recovered and brought home.

    He had some living siblings.

    RIP guys.
