Pearl Harbor remains to be identified

Due to improvements in forensic analysis and identification, the remains of 394  then unidentifiable remains of service men killed aboard the USS Oklahoma during the bombing of Pearl Harbor and buried in a grave as Unknown at a national cemetery in Hawaii will now be dug up and identified. It is good that we can identify these men who died in service to our nation.  I think this is interesting that it is happening now. I have no info as to why or who pushed for it. This will take a lot of time and money and effort. Who is paying for it?  Well we the taxpayers will pay for it ultimately. Also, I think it is interesting that this was not covered in CNN, I had to read about it in the BBCNews. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-32313713
