La Porte Brothers Get Proper Burial

(Honolulu, Hawaii) - The mortal remains of two La Porte brothers who were lost at Pearl Harbor have finally been properly laid to rest.


Harold and William Trapp grew up in La Porte, joined the Navy together, and went down with the same battleship.  For nearly 80 years, their bones were mingled with others, until DNA testing identified them recently.


On Tuesday, caskets with their remains were buried together and marked with headstones at Punchbowl Cemetery in Hawaii.  According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, 12 family members were present at the ceremony, along with 75 uniformed service members.
