Private Robert L. Miller joined the U.S. Army from California and served with the 194th Tank Battalion in the Philippines during World War II. He was captured in Bataan following the American surrender on April 9, 1942, and died of malaria, dysentery, and malnutrition on October 8, 1942, at the Cabanatuan Prison Camp in Nueva Ecija Province. He was buried in communal grave 515 in the camp cemetery along with six other deceased American POWs; however, his remains could not be associated with any seven remains recovered from Cabanatuan 515 after the war. Today, Private Miller is memorialized on the Walls of the Missing at the Manila American Memorial in the Philippines. Based on all information available, DPAA assessed the individual's case to be in the analytical category of Active Pursuit. US POW/MIA Family Locating found his maternal niece for a family reference sample (DNA).
