Pearl Harbor Remains Identified; Laid To Rest In Lewisport Next Year

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The remains of a U.S. Navy sailor who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor were identified and will be honored in Kentucky. Navy Fireman 2nd Class Martin Young died on Dec. 7, 1941 when the USS Oklahoma capsized. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency exhumed unknown remains from the USS Oklahoma in 2015 and used dental and anthropological analyses to identify veterans, including Young. A rosette will be placed by Young’s name on the Walls of the Missing at the Punchbowl to indicate that he was found. Young will be buried on May 15, 2021, in Lewisport.
