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.

Now, Martinez says there's a proposal to display the names in an exhibit at the USS Arizona Memorial visitor's center.
