One of the last survivors who served on the USS Arizona on December 7, 1941 was interred with his fallen shipmates aboard the sunken USS Arizona.

    It made me wonder though... is this something that's done? The article didn't really say, so I don't know if this is a common practice or something rare. I don't mean at the Arizona Memorial specifically, but battlefields in general.

    There was a great documentary awhile back that featured the USS Arizona and the veterans who are interred there. They even sent in a submersible to view the interior of the ship. Greatest Generation indeed.
