  1. “His Lord said to him, Well done, you good and faithful servant…” Matthew 25:21.

    In 2011/2012, TSGT Harry Arnold Carlsen was submitted as a “Most Likely Match” to only one “Unknown” buried in the Punchbowl Cemetery in official Investigative Reports submitted by Chief Rick Stone while he was a member of the Department of Defense. Chief Stone identified TSGT Carlsen as a “Most Likely Match” to Unknown X-82. The Chief Rick Stone and Family Charitable Foundation later refined and updated the original investigations and provided comprehensive reports to TSGT Carlsen’s family in 2013, 2014, and 2016. A member of the U.S. Congress also requested a copy of the Foundation’s investigation into TSGT Carlsen’s case, which was immediately provided. In 2016, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency decided to act on the official recommendations of Chief Stone for disinterment and identification of the Punchbowl Unknowns from Tarawa. TSGT Carlsen’s identification as Unknown X-82 was confirmed by the USMC on August 16, 2018. Welcome home Marine! Our Foundation shares the joy of your family in your return! God Bless you and thanks to ALL who never forgot you and your service to our country!
