Welcome Home Pfc. George Traver. You've been identified, and now your war is over.
The remains of a Marine killed in a World War II Pacific battle nearly 73 years ago have been identified by military officials using dental records and a Boy Scout pocket knife.
Pfc. George Traver’s mother sent him the knife after he joined the Marines in 1942, WNYT-TV reported Friday. He had it on him when his remains were found in May 2015 buried in a mass grave on the island of Tawara in the South Pacific.
Welcome home PFC Traver. As SGT (Join to see) said, your war is over and may you now rest back in your home town. Scouts are always prepared and his preparedness helped to identify him more than 70 years later.
