      NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Department of Veterans Services Commissioner Many-Bears Grinder recognize the service and sacrifice of U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Henry Andregg, Jr. of Whitwell, who was presumably killed during the Battle of Tarawa on November 20, 1943.  Andregg was assigned to Company C, 2nd Amphibious Tractor Battalion, 2nd Marine Division at the time of the infamous battle that killed approximately 1,000 marines and sailors and wounded more than 2,000 service members.  He was 22-years old.

      Previously, Andregg’s remains were interred at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu in an unidentified grave.  The U.S. Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency exhumed his remains in October, 2016 and the remains were identified in May, 2017 using DNA analysis.
