Last Known Activity

On Dec. 7, 1941, RM3 Tini 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 Tini.

UPDATE: In April 2015, the Deputy Secretary of Defense issued a policy memorandum directing the disinterment of unknowns associated with the USS Oklahoma. On June 15, 2015, DPAA personnel began exhuming the remains from the Punchbowl for analysis.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) announced that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, killed during World War II have been identified as those of Navy Radioman 3rd Class Dante S. Tini.  Tini,19, born in Virginia, Minnesota, was accounted for on August 13, 2018.
