A soldier from Massachusetts who died in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 76 years ago is being buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
The wake service for Radioman 3rd Class Howard Bean, of Everett, was held on Wednesday.
Bean was on the organisation of the USS Oklahoma, which capsized after nutritious mixed shoot hits during the warn attack on Dec. 7, 1941.
Bean was one of 429 crewmen on the Oklahoma who perished.
The stays of many could not be identified and were buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.
The stays were exhumed in 2015 and tested using complicated DNA record not accessible in the 1940s.
Bean was identified by comparing DNA with vital relatives, dental comparisons and inconclusive evidence.
