FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -- The U.S. Navy is working to identify the remains of casualities from Pearl Harbor. One of the latest identifications is that of a Kentucky man. Navy Fireman 1st Class Billy J. Johnson, originally of Caney, Kentucky, was only 22-years-old when he received assignment to the USS Oklahoma. The ship was struck by multiple torpedoes, and it eventually capsized. He was one of 429 crewman who died during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.
