While bringing up the turret the remains of two men were recovered. Although the remains were sent to the Navy lab in Hawaii which identifies many bodies and remains they remain unknown. There is a 50% chance that one of the men may be William Bryan, whose great-great-great nephew lives here in a neighboring town. He gave a DNA sample to the Navy lab, and he and his daughter will attend the burial ceremony.
