Peoria Sailor’s Remains Identified
(Peoria, IL) — A Peoria family says it is happy to know where a sailor who died in the attack in Pearl Harbor is. William “Bill” Hellstern’s family yesterday said researchers identified his remains last month. Hellstern was 20-years-old when he died in the attack in December of 1941. He was a sailor on the USS Oklahoma. Hellstern’s nephew, Ted Hummell, told WMBD TV yesterday that their story proves it’s true that the military never leaves a man behind.
