COLORADO SPRINGS — The remains of a sailor killed in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor are set to arrive in Colorado Springs for burial.

The Gazette reports that Medal of Honor recipient John Charles England died aboard the USS Oklahoma on Dec. 7, 1941.

His unidentified body had been buried along with hundreds of other shipmates in a Hawaii cemetery for almost 70 years until he was positively identified earlier this year.

England’s remains are scheduled to arrive in Colorado Springs on Friday.

His granddaughter, Bethany Glenn, says he will be buried with full military honors in a cemetery plot beside his parents, Sam and Thelma England, who purchased the adjoining plot with a headstone that bore their son’s name.

His graveside funeral service will take place Saturday.
