Markers To Be Shipped to Hawaii

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Marble markers bearing the names of the 429 men who died on the USS Oklahoma during Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor will soon be on their way to Hawaii for a monument to the ship.

The memorial will be dedicated this December.

The markers are being created by EuroCraft Granite and Marble Fabrication in Glenpool.

State Sen. Jim Reynolds says Swift Trucking is donating its services to help move the markers from Glenpool, to the Capitol in Oklahoma City, then on to California.

He says from there, the markers will be shipped to Ford Island at Pearl Harbor for the memorial.

Reynolds has been working with USS Oklahoma survivors on the project.
