NOTE: Mr. Ray Emory, Survivor USS Honolulu researched official burial records pertaining to Pearl Harbor casualties for December 7, 1941. This revealed that 647 remains of 12/7/41 UNKNOWNS are interred at the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific, 2177 Puowaina Dr., Honolulu.

Such burial records reveal that 579 of the 647 UNKNOWNS came from the following ships:
USS ARIZONA: 126
USS CALIFORNIA: 22
USS CURTIS: 1
USS OKLAHOMA: 381
USS UTAH: 14 and
USS WEST VIRGINIA: 35

The records did not reveal the applicable ships for the other 60 remains (most picked up in the harbor). However, it is believed that at least 40 are from the USS ARIZONA.

Muster Roll Notes/USS ARIZONA MEMORIAL: There were 35 sets of brothers (the Anderson set being twins) and one father/son (both KIA) combination assigned to the the ship. There were three cases of three brothers being so assigned (e.g. Beckers, Dohertys and Murdocks). The Warriners were the only surviving brother combination with one suffering severe burns. One of several indicators on possible brother combinations is the same last name and the first five numbers in the service number being the same. Assignment of brothers to same ship stopped when the five Sullivans were lost on JUNEAU.

The assistance of Ray Emory, USS HONOLULU survivor in providing names of additional sets of brothers, names of those buried at Nuuanu Cemetary, gravesite locations at Punchbowl and home town/city of those who visited the Memorial is greatly appreciated.

UNKNOWNS from the USS ARIZONA are interred in the following gravesites at Punchbowl.
NOTE: The 29 identified with # were removed from Turret II in 1942/43 per PH NYD War Diaries.
