Found MIA WWII Marine from LI Buried at Arlington

TARAWA, Kiribati - A 3rd Marine Regiment color guard takes its place, July 25, 2015, during a repatriation ceremony in Tarawa, Kiribati. The ceremony honored the remains of approximately 36 Marines who fought and died during the Battle of Tarawa during World War II, and were loaded onto a C-130J Hercules aircraft to be transported back home to the United States.

Seventy-two years after he died in a World War II battle and two years after his remains were found, a U.S. Marine from Long Island was buried Wednesday at Arlington National Cemetery. 

U.S. Marine Cpl. George Critchley

Marine Cpl. Walter Critchley attended Valley Stream High School in the 1930s after his family moved from his native New Rochelle and before they relocated to New Jersey, according to the New York Daily News. He was 24 when he was among 1,000 US soldiers and sailors killed in the Battle of Tarawa in November 1943.

Critchley, who was assigned to Company F, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, was among 35 solders’ whose remains were found in June 2015 by a non-government organization called History Flight at a battleground burial site on Betio Island, part of the Gilbert Islands in the Pacific, according to the Department of Defense.

The Pentagon identified his remains earlier this year. He was given full military honors upon his burial.

Despite the heavy casualties suffered by American forces, the battle was a victory for the US military because the Gilbert Islands provided the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet a platform from which to launch assaults on the Marshall and Caroline Islands to advance their campaign against Japan, the Pentagon said.

Of 400,000 US service members killed in WWII, nearly 73,000 are still missing and an estimated 26,000 are considered still recoverable.

Construction Begins on $75M New Cold Spring Harbor Lab Facility

Cold Spring Harbor Lab
October 12, 2017-Cold Spring Harbor, NY- Governor Andrew Cuomo breaks ground on $75 Million Cold Spring Harbor Lab Center for therapeuatics research.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory broke ground Thursday on a $75-million project to build a new Center for Therapeutics Research that will apply the lab’s biomedical expertise to advance treatment of genetic diseases.

The new center will support the renowned lab’s continuing advancements in fundamental biology research in the areas of breast cancer, leukemia, autism, obesity/diabetes and lung cancer therapeutics, officials said.

“The faster you get these inventions, these discoveries to market, the more you help people,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, noting that New York State is investing $25 million in the project. “You can literally save lives. And Cold Spring harbor has done that.”

Since being founded in 1890, the lab has won eight Nobel Prizes for its breakthroughs in molecular biology and genetics, most notably for James Watson’s and Francis Crick’s discovery of the double helix structure of DNA.

The new 26,000-square-foot research facility will be one of the nation’s most innovative centers, where dozens of scientists will be integrating biology and human genomics with chemistry and protein data, officials said. It will be located in the newly renovated Demerec Lab.

Chemists will take targets produced from biologists and refine them for next-generation therapies that will form the basis of new partnerships with the pharmaceutical industry—the goal being to develop the most advanced drug compounds targeted to the underlying biological pathway, officials said.

The center is expected to be completed at the end of next year. The remaining $50 million is expected to come from grants, donations and academic partnerships.
