Navy Seaman 1st Class John E. Savidge, killed during the attack on the USS Oklahoma in World War II, has now been accounted for on September 8, 2017 by Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.

On Dec. 7, 1941, Savidge 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 Savidge. 

Interment services are pending; more details will be released 7-10 days prior to scheduled funeral services.

DPAA is appreciative to the Department of Veteran's Affairs for their partnership in this mission.

Savidge's name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at an American Battle Monuments Commission site along with the others who are missing from World War II. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.
