More USS Oklahoma "Unknowns" Come Home
It is so great seeing these brave sailors and Marines who were entombed when the battleship USS Oklahoma capsized being identified through DNA and now coming home.
Here is a partial list of them:
WILLARD ALDRIDGE, Seaman 1st class, from Kansas. To be buried at Highland Cemetery, Ashland, Kansas. Born August 26, 1921.
QUENTIN J. GIFFORD, Radioman 2nd class, Declared officially Lost In Action in February 1942. Funeral held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. He is the 4th Minnesotan to be identified from the Oklahoma. There will be a 5th one later this year.
HOWARD W. BEAN, Radioman 3rd class. From Everett, Massachusetts. Buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
Thank You U.S. Government. --GreGen
