Marine to be interred at USS Arizona

A Marine who survived the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor will be interred at the USS Arizona.

Private First Class Frank Cabiness' ashes will be placed inside the hull of the Arizona Friday afternoon by Navy divers.

The Marine Corps says Cabiness was on the USS Arizona as part of a flag raising detail when the first Japanese aircraft flew over the harbor. He was blown from the decks of the ship when the magazine exploded in the forward compartment.

He's the second Marine to be interred on the Arizona.
