Last Known Activity

On Dec. 7, 1941, Bennett was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma, which was moored at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, when the ship was attacked by Japanese aircraft. The USS Oklahoma sustained multiple torpedo hits, which caused it to quickly capsize. The attack on the ship resulted in the deaths of 429 crewmen, including Bennett.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, killed during World War II have been identified as those of Navy Fireman 3rd Class Robert J. Bennett.  Bennett, 18, born in Monona, Iowa, was accounted for on August 13.
