Buried as an "Unknown" at the Manila American Cemetery - PVT Martin Kunik, served with Company H, 31st Infantry Regiment in the Philippines at the outbreak of WW2. Martin was captured by the Japanese when General King surrendered the Bataan forces on 9 April 1942. Martin died at the notorious POW Camp Cabanatuan in July 1942.
This is Martin's story of being an immigrant to the US, his ultimate sacrifice for our Freedoms and his family's struggle to get Martin identified to be brought home for an honorable burial under a headstone with his own name. His nephew Dr. Frank Kunik Jr. talks about the process and the roadblocks his family has faced in getting Martin identified.
