WWII sailor's remains identified
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- The remains of a U.S. sailor missing since World War II have been identified, the U.S. Department of Defense said Friday.

The remains of Seaman 1st Class General P. Douglas of Newcomb, Tenn., will be returned to his family for burial and full military honors, the department's POW/Missing Personnel Office said in a news release.

Douglas was one of more than 150 servicemen who were missing when the USS Helena was torpedoed July 6, 1943, by Japanese destroyers off the coast of Kolombangara Island in the Solomon Islands. In 2006, a resident of Ranongga Island in the Solomons, contacted U.S. officials that he found human remains and Douglas's dog tag.

Douglas was identified by dental records, circumstantial evidence and other forensics testing, the department said.
