    Complete Military records for Yiluardi Pacheco Bartolomei

    Elaine Van Pelt Newbie

      Does anyone know where to find information concerning the Military Service of Yiluardi Pacheco Bartolomei, USA, PFC, MIA 8 Jan 1952, North Korea, PKIA 31 Dec 1952 or 53. Served in 65th Regiment HQ HQ CO and Hometown was Ponce, PR. Looking for official information:  date entered US Army, where inducted, drafted or volunteered, awards and decorations, circumstances surrounding his missing status, telegrams to family, condolence letters, actions to change his status to presumed dead, what is his current status MIA or PKIA, pictures, just anything at all. Records to include DD1400, awards and decorations, pictures, circumstances surrounding death.

       

      His 2nd generation continues to search, but we are growing older and we want to tell his story to his 3rd and 4th generation.  Would the time come for his family to receive his repatriated remains, it is important for them to know Yiluarde's story and to receive his remains with respect and understanding.

       

      Appreciate the help

          Elaine,

           

          Here are some things I found on my own,

          Private First Class Pacheco-Bartolomei service # 29177411 was a member of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 65th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. He was listed as Missing in Action while fighting the enemy in North Korea on January 8, 1952. He was presumed dead on December 31, 1953. His remains were not recovered. His name is inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial. Private First Class Pacheco-Bartolomei was awarded the Purple Heart, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Presidential Unit Citation and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal.

           

          You could try to obtain after action reports for his unit, this would probably give you an idea of were he was located before he was presumed MIA, or KIA maybe that would at least give a clue as to his last known whereabouts.

           

           

          Thanks,
