Funeral for Mus2c Francis E. Dick (Lost at Pearl Harbor)

| February 11, 2019

Last September, DPAA announced that it had accounted for Mus2c Francis E. Dick, crewmember of the USS Oklahoma who had been lost at Pearl Harbor.

Per DPAA, Mus2c Dick will be buried later this week – on Wednesday, 13 February 2019, to be precise – in Vancouver, Washington (state). Regrettably, DPAA does not seem to have posted the location for his funeral or interment.

If any TAH readers have the precise location for either the funeral or interment, please post it in comments below. And if any readers are in that area and have the time, here’s an opportunity to give someone lost at Pearl Harbor a proper final send-off.

    Thanks for the update Hondo; and a special Thanks to 2/17 Air Cav for the linky. I went signed the guest book, y’all other TAHellcats need to stop by and drop a few words.

    Some of the comments posted were from people that met the aircraft with his remains. Another was from an airline employee that paid Honors to “Ham” and handled the transfer from aircraft to ground transport. Very humbling.

    Hand Salute! Ready….Two
