On Tuesday, Barracks Marines laid repatriated Korean War Marine Pfc. Billy E. Johnson to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

Read below for more info.

Semper Fidelis, Marine.

Marine Corps Pfc. Billy E. Johnson, 21, of White Oak, Texas, killed during the Korean War, was buried today at Arlington National Cemetery.

In late 1950, Johnson was a member of the 1st Marine Division, attached to the U.S. Army’s 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. He was reported missing in action on Nov. 30, 1950, after the enemy attacked his unit near the Chosin Reservoir, North Korea. Following the battle, his remains could not be recovered.

On July 27, 2018, following the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in June 2018, North Korea turned over 55 boxes, purported to contain the remains of American service members killed during the Korean War. The remains arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii on Aug. 1, 2018, and were subsequently accessioned into the DPAA laboratory for identification.

To identify Johnson’s remains, scientists from DPAA used anthropological analysis, as well as circumstantial and material evidence. Additionally, scientists from the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System used mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and autosomal DNA (auSTR) analysis.

Today, 7,607 Americans remain unaccounted for from the Korean War. Using modern technology, identifications continue to be made from remains that were previously returned by Korean officials, recovered from Korea by American recovery teams or disinterred from unknown graves. Johnson’s name is recorded on the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, along with the others who are missing from the Korean War. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.

Rest in peace Pfc. Johnson

Merry Christmas and happy new year, thank you guys for your unselfish sacrifice and dedication !! you are greatly appreciated you make 🇺🇸 USA OF AMERICA PROUD. BTW On Christmas Day, I, Mr. Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton went from Reston VA to Marine Barracks Washington. He arrived in the vicinity @ around 10AM. He went to every guard post and wished the marines standing guard duty a very merry Christmas. This was because he could not visit family in North Carolina, let alone his mother's family in Denmark for Christmas due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So he had to come to Marine Barracks Washington instead. This is not the only time that I've observed Christmas in a special way. In December 1982 I was in Togo West Africa......Respectfully sent by Mr. Niels W. Pemberton. Yes, I'm on Facebook. Leave a message. Thank you.
" I am sure I have always thought of Christmas-time, when it has come round—apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens. Mr. Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton wishes ALL @ Marine Barracks Washington a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Merry Christmas My Friend. T’was the night before Christmas, he lived all alone, In a one-bedroom house made of plaster & stone. I had come down the chimney, with Nationals tickets & Nationals clothes to give and to see just who in this home did live As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see, no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree. No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with dirt, mud and sand. On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands. A;'stan Iraq & Montenegro With medals and badges, awards of all kind, a sobering thought soon came to my mind. For this house was different, unlike any I'd seen. This was the home of a U.S. Marine. I'd heard stories about them, I had to see more, so I walked down the hall and pushed open the door. And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone, Curled upon the floor in his one-bedroom home. He seemed so gentle, his face so serene, Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine. Was this the hero, of whom I'd just read? Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed? His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan. I soon understood, this was more than a man. For I knew well the families that I saw that night, owed their lives to these men, who were willing to fight. Soon around the Nation, the children would play, And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day. They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year, because of Marines like this one lying here. I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone, on a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home. Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye. I dropped to my knees and I started to cry. He must have awoken, for I heard a smooth but rough voice,, "Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more. My life is my God, my country, my Corps." With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep, I couldn't control it, I continued to weep. I watched him for hours, so silent and still. I noticed he shivered from the cold night's chill. So I took off my Nationals post-season jacket, the one made of red, and covered this Marine from his toes to his head. Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold, with an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold. And although it fit me, I began to swell with pride, and for one-shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside. “Whew!” Then I tactfully but sympathetically changed out of it. I didn't want to leave him so quiet in the night, this guardian of honor so willing to fight. But half-asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure, said "Carry on, Nationals Man, it's Christmas Day, all secure." One look at my swiss army watch and I knew he was right, Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight. "It's Christmas time, and there's no need to be afraid At Christmas time, we let in light and banish shade And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around Marines at Christmas time !" (With my apologies to the members of UK’s Band Aid who performed and recorded Do They Know It is Christmas on 11-25-1984.And my apologies to Bob Geldof and Midge Ure who wrote this song in reaction to television reports of the 1983–85 famine in Ethiopia) Sincerely, Mr. Niels William “Nationals Man” Pemberton Eagle Scout 5-15-1980 AD @ 20:00 EDT.

And so the Shortest Day came and the year died And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world since 1801. Came Marines @ Marine Barracks Washington singing, dancing, To drive the dark away. They lighted candles in the winter trees; They hung their homes with evergreen; They burned beseeching fires all night long To keep the year alive. And when the new year’s sunshine blazed awake They shouted, reveling. Through all the frosty ages you can hear them Echoing behind us — listen! All the long echoes, sing the same delight, This Shortest Day, As promise wakens in the sleeping land: They carol, feast, give thanks, And dearly love their friends,And think of those less fortunate. And hope for peace. And now so do we, here, now, This year and every year. WELCOME YULE ! Respectfully Sent, Mr. Niels W.

Hello to ALL @ Marine Barracks Washington on the USMC 's 245th birthday. From Mr. Niels W. "Nationals Man" Pemberton. Eagle Scout and World Traveler. REM fan. An Alumnus of James Madison University in Harrisonburg VA.
My Brother William DiCesare 'Bill' was Stationed There I Believe as a Body Bearer and other duties around 1966 or 1967.Later killed in an auto accident in Virginia 1969 while still active.I was wondering if anybody remembered him. Would love to chat with anybody that remembers him or could give me information how to get more information about marines that my have been serving with him. Thanks to all who maybe able to help
My name is Darren Dayton. I served in the United States Marine corps from 1987 to 1991. I served under a sergeant by the name of Jimmy Blair at NWS Yorktown Virginia. The information I have been able to gather is he served as a sergeant major of eighth and I barracks sometime in the early 2000s. I am looking for information to try to locate the sergeant major. Ifanyone is able to help me or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Semper Fi my Brothers

Saw what looked like a Sunset Parade rehearsal today?
When I was attached to Guard Company, while on duty we wore our Blue Delta's. This included a white web belt and white magazine pouch, and holster. We also wore a white pistol lanyard that was attached to our M 1911.... This was about 100 years ago... ( 1982 ).... Lol.... Boy, that was a trip down memory lane.... Semper Fi....
This is Mr. Niels W. Pemberton alias "Nationals Man" For 9 baseball & soccer seasons I've loyally and never failed to faithfully delivered the scores for baseball games ( who won & who lost ) to Marines standing guard duty @ Marine Barracks Washington. the 8th wonder of the modern world. These are trying times for America. An viral epidemic is raging and our leaders @ this writing seem at a loss to deal with it. Noone is left unaffected. As I write I've lost my 3 jobs, and I am (luckily) to say that I'm physically healthy & taking all measures. (I've a total of 4 masks 1 bandanna and 2 scout neckerchiefs to use--I 'm an Eagle Scout since May 15 1980 @ 20:00 EDT @ United Christian Parish in Reston . The 8th Scout in Reston's Boy Scout Troop 1970 to get this exalted rank. ( I'm a Brotherhood Honor member of the Order of the Arrow) (I'm a world traveler having been to Europe & Togo in Africa.) But today. Today I'm physically healthy but mentally--fragile. I feel helpless, VERY BORED, "fenced-in" anxious, (WHEN will this Covid thing be over ?!) and depressed with a sense of loss and sadness. I've weekly insomnia & I worry. (My dad turned 86 on 8-7.) So Sunday for my mental HEALTH , I went masked and "audited" the baseball game...(It was stopped 5 to 2 Orioles (On 5-15-1980 I's following the O's!) then I went to all the guard posts of MBW and gave the scores of the baseball game just played. Both things were BLATENTLY for my mental health !! When you are mentally heathy you are RICH !!
Open to the public yet? How about Sunset parades?
