HONOLULU (Jan. 25, 2018) Sailors assigned to Navy Region Hawaii transport the remains of U.S. Navy Reserve Chief Water Tender Paul R. Wright at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii. On Dec. 7, 1941, Wright was assigned to USS Oklahoma which sustained multiple torpedo hits from Japanese aircraft causing the ship to capsize and resulted in the deaths of other 429 crew members at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor. Wright was recently identified through DNA analysis with the help of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and returned to his family for burial with full military honors.
