Last Known Activity

The Battle of Guam began on December 8, 1941. By January 10, 1942 five hundred US prisoners had been rounded up and placed aboard ship to be taken to Japan. Six men were unaccounted for - one of them being YN1 Yablonsky. George Tweed, who survived the war, said he and the other men went into the hungle and evaded capture for as long as possible.

During the latter part of the war, Tweed was harbored by the family of Antonio Artero. Krump, Jones and Yablonsky were discovered in the Manenggon area in September 1942 and were beheaded by the Japanese. Two months later, Tyson and Johnston were found and shot in Machananao after having been harbored by Frank D. Perez and others.

As yet, the bodies of the men have not been recovered and so their names remain on the official list of men missing in action.
