F3c Harold K. Costill, 18 years old, was killed during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, while serving aboard the USS West Virgina. Harold Costill was one of the 647 soldiers whose bodies were never identified. From that number 33 men were from the USS West Virgina. Their remains are in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific on Honolulu, under stone markers that simply read "Unknown". The Navy paid for a marble marker to be placed in Cedar Green Cemetery (Clayton, NJ) with Harold's name on it in 1961.
