WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. — An Arkansas sailor who died during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor will be honored after his remains are brought home this summer.

Glenn Tipton was killed aboard the battleship USS Oklahoma, which capsized in the attack by Japanese aircraft.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Tipton's remains were identified after his family submitted DNA five years ago to the U.S. Navy as part of its efforts to distinguish the remains of sailors.

A funeral ceremony will be held in honor of the Purple Heart recipient at the Wings of Honor museum in Walnut Ridge once his remains are returned to Lawrence County.

Harold Johnson, who runs the museum, says he and his staff are extremely honored by the family's choice to use their facility.
