This is an FYI for the family of William D. Arbuckle who perished so bravely on the USS Utah at Pearl Harbor. You will want to read this and act accordingly. On a personal note: Ironically, the Battleship USS Pennsylvania, also damaged and suffering loss of many lives and several injuries at Pearl Harbor. She was to become the future home of my father, another Arbuckle descendant, for several months during the War. Our bonds are infite, this heroic family, that I stand so proud of all our family members and all other Veterans of this and all Wars, for all of their sacrifices. Thank you all. Rest in Peace.

Please read to the end, if you haven't already seen this.

It is believed that the remains of some of those KIA aboard Utah are interred in graves marked "unknown" in the Cemetery of the Pacific aka "The Punchbowl" on the Island of Oahu near Honolulu. In an effort to identify the remains of those sailors, the Navy is offering a DNA kit to female relatives and descendants of these men.
