ABMC will host a ceremony at ABMC’s Honolulu Memorial to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Tarawa and to rededicate the memorial, which recently underwent a significant restoration project. 

Participants in the event will include representatives from ABMC, the National Cemetery Administration, and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. 

Following the ceremony, the families of recently identified MIA’s from Tarawa will have an opportunity to install an ABMC rosette next to the name of their family member listed in the Courts of the Missing at the memorial. 

The event is open to the public.  For more information, visit www.abmc.gov or e-mail Carol Tyler at tylerc@abmc.gov.
