Greenleaf dedicates memorial

A memorial was dedicated to the late Camillus O’Grady, who grew up in Greenleaf.

The Greenleaf community dedicated a memorial stone to a young man many had never heard of.

Camillus O’Grady lived in Greenleaf most of his life. He graduated high school in 1940, and in July of that same year, enlisted in the Navy. He was assigned to the battleship USS Oklahoma, stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. On Dec. 7, 1941, Camillus, along with 428 of his crewmen, were killed.

From 1941 to 1944 Navy personal worked to recover the remains of the crew. The remains were buried in Halawa and Nu’uanu cemeteries. In September 1947 the bodies were disinterred and attempts were made to identify the remains.

Only 35 were identified. Camillus was not one of them. He and the other 394 crew members were buried in 46 plots. In 1949 the military board classified those who could not be identified as non-recoverable, including O’Grady.
