The remains of two sailors who were killed during the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor have been identified, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency announced. 

Navy Seaman 1st Class Edward E. Talbert, 19, of Albemarle, North Carolina, and Pfc. Walter L. Collier, 20, of Burbank, California, were identified.

Talbert was accounted for on August 5, the agency said in a statement Wednesday. Collier was identified on May 25 but his family only recently received a full briefing.

Both sailors was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma, which was moored at Ford Island when Japanese aircraft attacked. Multiple torpedo hits quickly caused the warship to capsize.
