    Marines with Marine Corps Barracks (8th & I) carry the casket of Marine Corps Cpl. Anthony G. Guerriero, at Arlington National Cemetery, near Washington, D.C., Nov. 14, 2017. Guerriero, 22, of Boston, and accounted for on June 20, 2017 was killed during World War II. In November 1943, Guerriero was assigned to Company B, 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, 2nd Marine Division, which landed against stiff Japanese resistance on the small island of Betio in the Tarawa Atoll of the Gilbert Islands, in an attempt to secure the island. Over several days of intense fighting at Tarawa, approximately 1,000 Marines and Sailors were killed and more than 2,000 were wounded, but the Japanese were virtually annihilated. Guerriero died on the second day of battle, Nov. 21, 1943. He was identified through DNA and anthropological analysis and returned to his family for burial with full military honors.
