Sad story
 
On Dec 7, 1941 on a peaceful Sabbath day, Seaman 2d Class Harold Lloyd Head was asleep on the Battleship Oklahoma in Pearl Harbor. In an instant, 429 crew died including Harold. It took 79 years to finally ID his remains only possible with recent medical discoveries. Today, with full military honors, He was put to rest in the War Mother's cemetery plot in Laclede, Missouri. I represented Linneus Post 538, American Legion at the funeral. The city procession route was lined with over 500 US Flags. May he finally rest in peace.

Good on you, Rick! The US Military has always taken care of its own. "Leave no one behind."

Have you seen the video where many of the Pearl Harbor survivors, when they die, have their ashes returned for burial at the Memorial? Very moving.

I hope that I did not come across as a boor not appreciating your gesture Rick.

Don't know about Rick, but I did not interpret your comment as boorish or otherwise 'off color'. I thought it was amusing.
