I've recently been collecting information on the civilians killed during the Pearl Harbor attack, and over the past month or so, I've noticed several "new" names appearing on some lists. Six of these names are the sampan crews killed by strafing on 8 December, and another is James Akana, the fire warden mistakenly assaulted. All well and good, and I'm glad to see them finally listed as victims of the attack, which they essentially were. However, I've also noticed the following names, and I cannot find anything at all on them. Can anyone please help clarify who they were and how they lost their lives relating to the attack?

Benugno Caabay
Ernest Chong
Theodore Freeman
Paul Ludicke
Mataichi Ogawa (perhaps an alternate reading of the name of the sampan crew?)
Manuel Paiva

I also keep seeing the name Virgil Rahel as being a Navy Yard employee whose name was added to the list of casualties only in 2001. I'm probably spelling his name wrong, but can anyone clarify?

Thanks very much,

Dave Wright

Aloha Dave,
Ray Emory, USS Honolulu on 7 Dec, is the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association's "Battle Historian". He is also an important member of the Pearl Harbor History Associates, Inc.

In the mid-1980s, Ray was a docent at the USS Arizona Memorial and began to roster the father-son and brothers killed that day...I asked him to do an on site investigation of a paper link I had about USS Enterprise SBD gunner, Mitchel Cohen, MIA, to an 'unknown' burial at Punchbowl.

From that point, Ray has found a host of errors in the accounting process at Punchbowl and names written in stone at the USS Arizona Memorial. He has worked with the Park Rangers to change the ceramic plates at the memorial and was instrumental in getting the late Congresswoman Patsy Mink to push a bill through Congress to RE-label a host of Pearl Harbor related headstones at Punchbowl to include "date of death", "known ship assigned" to the UNKNOWNs and others.

The task has begun by the Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command [which CILHI is now a part] to follow the leads Ray provided to disinterr select UNKNOWNs and make DNA matches. The JPMAC folk now have finally IDed the sole USS Curtiss...it did not take a 'brain' to determine that if one had a single MIA from a known ship...and we have an UNKNOWN whose body is known to be from that ship, that they are one and the same! Yet, the paperwork was never completed until Ray went through the files.

Ray's interrum list of civilian deaths is what is rostered in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin editorial viewpoint on 10 Dec 1996. His additions, deletions, and corrections -since then- are refinements. His work is near completion.

HTH,
