18-Year-Old Pearl Harbor Sailor’s Remains Identified

An 18-year-old soldier who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country will finally be brought home. Howard S. Magers was a Navy Seaman 2nd Class, assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma. On Dec. 7, 1941, the Oklahoma capsized in Pearl Harbor after being hit by several torpedoes during an air attack from Japan. Magers was identified using dental and anthropological analysis, as well as mitochondrial and autosomal DNA.

    People in the past seems a lot of braver. Though that is probably because they had to. In my generation everyone would start screaming if they see a spider or any bugs. It’s crazy how before young people seem to be so brave, literally seeing and hearing gunshots and watching others die, but he still can’t/wouldn’t start crying.
