Pearl Harbor Casualty Put To Rest In Hometown

Last updated on Monday, July 23, 2007

(WORTHINGTON) - A Worthington sailor killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor has been reburied in his hometown.

Fireman first class Alfred Livingston was 18 when he went down with the USS Oklahoma 66 years ago.

A giant American flag hung over the road leading to the Worthington cemetery for Livingston burial with full military honors.

Livingston had been in a grave for unidentified casualties until a Pearl Harbor survivor turned naval historian traced his identity last year.
