Episode 3 - The MIA's Who Never Were

Episode 3 describes the investigations into eight Marines who were officially listed as "Missing In Action" by the Department of Defense from the Battle of Tarawa in 1943. The cases were resolved by Chief Rick Stone in 2011 by determining that the MIA Marines were never missing in the first place.  One case involved a Marine who survived the battle and sought assistance by the Veteran's Administration in 1977 only to be told that he could not be helped because he had been killed in action in 1943!  Unbelievable, but true!
