Funeral held for Tennessee World War II pilot

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The remains of a Tennessee World War II pilot have been laid to rest at his family’s cemetery.

The Tennessean reports a funeral was held Saturday for Navy Reserve Ensign Harold P. DeMoss in Nashville. He was 21 when his airplane crashed during training in July 1945 in a remote area on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

DeMoss was buried next to the graves of his mother and father.

The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says DeMoss’ remains were accounted for in May and identified through “material and circumstantial evidence” after excavating the crash site in 2016.
