National Memorial Cemetery

Remains of Pearl Harbor victims dug up for identification

The coffins were dug up at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, where they have rested for decades. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency said in April it would disinter up to 388 Oklahoma servicemen to account for sailors and Marines still classified as missing.

The cemetery and the military allowed media to observe a ceremony afterward when flags were draped over the coffins.
