Shelby Treadway, from Manchester, Kentucky, died in an attack on December 7, 1941, while riding the USS Oklahoma.
Louisville, Kentucky — A recently discovered Kentucky sailor who died in Pearl Harbor was enshrined.
The attack on December 7, 1941, killed Shelby Treadway, Manchester’s Navy Gunner Mate Third Class.
The Treadway had a full military burial at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl) on Wednesday, June 2.
According to the U.S. Navy, the treadway was assigned to USS Oklahoma, where a ship capsized after firing from a Japanese aircraft and hit by multiple torpedoes, killing more than 400 crew members on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor.
In September 2020, a DNA analysis by the DPAA Forensic Institute identified the treadway.
Governor Andy Bescher ordered the half-mast to be lowered from sunrise to sunset on the day the treadway was buried.
