In Larry Smith's 2008 book of recollections of servicemen at Iwo Jima Battle .pp..152-153 on e recollection was the loss of two Marines at Iwo Jima {Babich and Madsen} who were killed in a cave at Iwo jima. There was a question if remains of either were ever recovered.

The remains of both were recovered because
1) They are not listed on the ABMC website
2) Their memorials online

John Babich KIA 20 march 1945

Howard Madsen KIA 20 March 1945
