The podcast you are about to hear was a previous interview I did with the niece of SGT Durrell Tidwell early last year.
We wanted to update the podcast about Durrell because we are happy to now say the Unknown graves at the Manila American Cemetery that are associated with his remains and the 18 others who were originally buried along with him at the Cabanatuan POW camp cemetery in Common Grave 212 has received a disinterment authorization from the Department of Defense.
What this means is our forensic genealogy research and making contact with the descendants of the other POW/MIAs who were originally buried together in CG 212, their families have provided their FRS DNA to the DPAA and the remains transferred to the DPAA Lab to be identified and sent home to their family for burial under a grave marker that has their name.
This process can take a few years to accomplish but the families of Cabanatuan common grave 212 now have closure!
I cannot wait to welcome SGT Tidwell home to his family hopefully later this year! Please sit back and enjoy this rebroadcast of SGT Tidwell’s Story of Sacrifice we did with his niece Elizabeth!
