Last Known Activity
The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced July 5, 2017 that the remains of a U.S. serviceman from World War II have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

Navy Seaman 1st Class Monroe Temple, 19, of Des Moines, Iowa, will be buried July 12, 2017 in The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, in Honolulu. On Dec. 7, 1941, Temple was assigned to the 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 Temple.
