Pearl Harbor Sailor’s Remains Identified and Returned to Family Over 70 Years Later

Navy Fire Controlman 3rd Class Jack A. Breedlove, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was assigned to the USS Oklahoma. The USS Oklahoma was moored at Pearl Harbor where it sustained multiple torpedo hits and capsized. Lack of forensic technology in the 1940s meant only 35 casualties were positively identified. Petty Officer Breedlove’s remains were identified in March 2021. Now that his remaining family has been notified, he will finally be laid to rest at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
