Last Known Activity

Eldon Wyman was born on January 11, 1917, in Portland, Oregon, and attended the University of Oregon from 1936 to 1940.  On August 22, 1940, he enlisted in the Naval Reserve as an Apprentice Seaman.  Following training on the USS Tuscaloosa (CA-37) he was appointed as Midshipman on March 17, 1941, and after attending Midshipman's School at Northwestern University he was commissioned an Ensign on June 12, 1941.  On July 19, 1941, he reported aboard USS Oklahoma (BB-37) and was assigned duty as junior watch officer of the ship's fire control division.
 
Six decades after he died in the attack on Pearl Harbor, Wyman was interred with full military honors at Wilhelm's Portland Memorial Sunset Chapel. Nearly 50 people attended the service and more than 100, including Pearl Harbor survivors, Patriot Guard and family from Puget Sound. Wyman had been buried in an unknown's grave at Punchbowl National Cemetery in Hawaii until he was identified in August 2008 through his sister's DNA. He was the son of Lilly P and Paul H Wyman.
