HONOLULU -- Historians are hoping to solve a remaining mystery of the Pearl Harbor attack and discover what happened to 29 Japanese airmen and four sailors missing in action.
Most are believed to have been lost at sea around Hawaii and in Pearl Harbor. But four aircrew members may still lie buried in unmarked graves in Ewa Beach and in the hills above Aiea.
World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument chief historian Daniel Martinez told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Americans didn't know the names of the Japanese dead for a long time. He says few Americans cared at the time, given the nature of the attack.
Now, Martinez says there's a proposal to display the names in an exhibit at the USS Arizona Memorial visitor's center.
