Marine Corps Reserve Private First Class Albert Strange was 18 when he died in the Pacific Theatre in 1943. The native of Mammoth Cave was among the approximately 1,000 U.S. casualties from the Battle of Tarawa on the Gilbert Islands. Representatives from the Defense POW-MIA Accounting Agency traveled to the battle scene in May to conduct excavations in hopes of finding unidentified remains.
