(WALNUT RIDGE, Ark.) — An Arkansas sailor who died during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor will be honored after his remains are brought home this summer.

Glenn Tipton was killed aboard the battleship USS Oklahoma, which capsized in the attack by Japanese aircraft.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Tipton’s remains were identified after his family submitted DNA five years ago to the U.S. Navy as part of its efforts to distinguish the remains of sailors.

A funeral ceremony will be held in honor of the Purple Heart recipient at the Wings of Honor museum in Walnut Ridge once his remains are returned to Lawrence County.

Harold Johnson, who runs the museum, says he and his staff are extremely honored by the family’s choice to use their facility.

The Latest: Duckworth and daughter make Senate history .
Sen. Tammy Duckworth and daughter Maile (MAY-lee) have made Senate history. The Illinois Democrat brought her daughter, in a pink hat, onto the Senate floor under new rules that permitted it. Duckworth already is the only senator to have given birth while serving in the Senate. Maile, born April 9, is the first senator's baby to be allowed on the chamber floor. The history was made under a new rule passed a day earlier that permitted newborns of senators on the floor during votes. The Republican-controlled Senate held the vote open so Duckworth and Maile could adhere to the new rule.
