Little known History:
A crew member of the USS Utah had been storing an urn containing his daughter’s ashes in his locker onboard, planning to scatter them at sea, but the Dec. 7 attack prevented him from ever doing so. Sixty-four men died aboard the USS Utah that day, and many of their bodies remain entombed within its sunken hull. The baby girl, who had died at birth, was finally honored with a funeral at the USS Utah Memorial at Pearl Harbor in 2003.
Also;
December 7th , 1941
A 21 year old 3rd Class “Quarter Master” stationed aboard the U.S.S. Utah BB-31/AG-16, survived Her sinking, went on to serve aboard the cruiser USS Honolulu CL-48 Receiving one campaign star for action defending the Aleutian Islands 1942.
