Uncle AC's grave

Oahu

Allen Crespo (AC to his family and friends) was my mother's older brother. He was killed in the battle of Cape Esperance on October 12, 1942 while serving on the USS Boise.

My mother has never had the opportunity to visit this grave, so this picture was taken for her. He is buried in the national cemetary located in the Punchbowl, an extinct volcanic crater. It is one of the most beautiful cemetaries I have ever visited.

Along with AC, many of those killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor are buried there, many of whom could not be identified and are listed as "Unknown" on their headstones. Some grave contain as many as 25 unknown casualties.
