Bernardus Pieter de Wit
Second Lieutenant, Royal Netherlands Marines
individual, a member of the Netherlands military, is buried in Section
15 of Arlington National Cemetery. Research concerning him continues.
If you know anything about this person kindly write to the webmaster.
I do not know the soldier in this grave, but I do know that he was not a member of the Royal Netherlands Army (Koningklijke Landmacht).
The stone says '2e LNT. MARS. KMR' which
means that the man was a Officer in the Marine Corps (Korps Mariniers).
I'm not sure about the KMR part, maybe it means Korps Mariniers = Marine Corps or Koningklijke Marine = Royal Netherlands Navy. In the Dutch armed forces the Marine Corps is part of the Royal Netherlands Navy.
If you did not yet have this information, I hope it is of some help to you.
Sincerely yours, Herman
DE WIT, BERNARD FISTER
