US to exhume remains from Pearl Harbor attack

Around 2,400 Americans died when Japan launched a devastating surprise attack on the Pearl Harbor naval baseThe US military plans to exhume the remains of 388 Americans killed in the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, in an unprecedented bid to identify troops using DNA testing, officials said Tuesday. The effort will focus on sailors and Marines from the USS Oklahoma who could never be identified, more than seven decades since the surprise attack that launched America’s entry into World War II. The ship sank when it was it struck by Japanese torpedoes in the Pearl Harbor attack, killing 429 sailors and Marines. Remains of most of the crew could not be identified and were eventually interred at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.
