I have access to the ships muster rolls on Fold3 and Ancestry. It doesn't list officers though.

It's an enlisted man I'm looking to confirm was assigned to the ship as part of the crew the day of the attack.

 

Thanks!

Do you have a close up of the photo? Looks to be from about 1935. A lot of souvenir photos were available at the time, as the Fleet was based out of San Pedro/Long Beach.

I checked the surname (I guess it was you, looks like the same photo?) gave on the facebook page, but there was no match to the December 7th 1941 crew. Sorry.

I just posted the colorized photo of the Oklahoma to go along with my inquiry, it has nothing to do with whom I am looking for information on. This photo was taken outside the golden gate entrance from a source on the net that shows the exact same photo. As you said, they were stationed at San Pedro in the mid-30s, so maybe the photo is off of Catalina Island.

Ok, if you have the name (if Kurt didn't fix you up) I can check the 12/7/1941 listing.

Appropriately enough, on December 7, 2017, the anniversary of the Japanese attack on the U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, the remains of Samuel Crowder were returned to Louisville, Ky. for burial. Crowder was killed on the USS Oklahoma. He was buried in a mass grave with his shipmates. In 2015 an effort began to identify the lost sailors with the use of DNA technology. Using the DNA profiles of surviving family members, the remains of Samuel Crowder were positively identified. He was buried with full military honors, next to his mother, at Resthaven Memorial Park, Louisville, Ky.

I purchased a book on the USS Oklahoma and the sailor in question was on the 12/7/41 crew's list. The interested thing is that the sailor listed directly below him is the grandfather of a guy I work with. It's a small world.

Bobbitt, William S. was a S2c on December 7th and was transferred to the USS Blue sometime after the attack.

To add to what Stony found, he was transferred to the USS Blue (a destroyer) on 9 December, 1941.

 

Here is an excerpt from the December 1941 muster roll changes for the USS Blue, he is number 4 on the list.

I think that Blue was evacuated after salvage efforts failed, the surviving crew were taken off by Canberra and another ship. Then it was sunk to prevent capture as it was considered a lost cause to tow it to safety. That would have been in the Savo Island battle in August.

Good to see.

 

I wonder who has the record for most ships sunk from under them.

Stony, if you are able to gather that information could you please share it? I'm from Oklahoma and have started looking for original USS Oklahoma items and gathering information. This image is pre-1928 refitting I picked up a few years ago.

I am a member of Delta's Honor Guard. We transfer remains of all fallen soldiers who pass through Atlanta with a full flag Honor Guard, rain or shine. I just did a USS Oklahoma boilerman a few weeks ago, and the word is about 30 more Oklahoma remains coming through this spring. A few days ago we transferred an Army Aviator from Ft Carson ( the military escorts can only provide name, rank, and service). When the final Unidentified bodies were recovered from the Oklahoma they were interred in the Puchbowl, Hawaii. In 2015 DOD dug them up and through DNA identified about 30 remains, they are now being shipped home. Also, we will start transferring the remains of 40 Marines who were recently uncovered in a mass grave while digging a parking lot in Okinawa ( I think). We are also transferring a few Korean War soldiers. It is going to be a busy summer. Delta is the only airline to provide this service to our fallen, all are volunteers, veterans, and we gratefully take upon this task for our fallen, past and present.post-180924-0-49069400-1552080821_thumb.jpeg
