(ARLINGTON, VA) - Marine Corps Pfc. Jonathan Reed Posey Jr., 20, of Dallas, TX was buried August 12, 2013 in Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery.

In December 1950, Posey, assigned to L Battery, 4th Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, was serving provisionally as an infantryman with the 7th Marine Regiment at Yudam-ni in the vicinity of the Chosin Reservoir.

On Dec. 2, 1950, Posey was killed in action while the 5th and 7th Marine Regiments were withdrawing to Hagaru-ri.

Posey’s remains were not recovered until 1954, during what became known as “Operation Glory” when the United Nations and Communist Forces exchanged remains of the war dead.

In 2012 analysts from the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command re-evaluated Posey’s records and determined that portions of the remains should be exhumed.

Scientists identified him using dental and radiograph technology, according to a blog on SemperFiParents.com. Posey’s status was changed from “unknown” to “accounted for” in June.
