Divers will place the ashes of a USS Arizona survivor in his ship's wreckage in Pearl Harbor during a ceremony this weekend.

Lauren Bruner will be the 44th and last crew member interred on the Arizona in accordance with a rare Navy ritual. That’s because the last three living Arizona survivors plan to be laid to rest with their families. Bruner was from Southern California and died earlier this year at age 98.
