Navy Machinist's Mate 2nd Class Leo Blitz and Navy Fireman 1st Class Rudolph Blitz

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The remains of twins who joined the Navy together have been returned to Lincoln for burial, decades after their deaths on a battleship at Pearl Harbor.

Two ceremonies will be held in succession Saturday at Lincoln Memorial Cemetery for Rudolph Blitz and his brother, Leo Blitz. There will be two flag-covered caskets, two 21-gun salutes, two invocations, two flags presented to their surviving sister, 93-year-old Lincoln resident Betty Pitsch. Her DNA contribution helped bring her older brothers home.

The 17-year-old twins left Lincoln High to join the Navy in 1938 and had been stationed at Pearl Harbor for a year and a day before the USS Oklahoma went down.

Their remains were buried at a Honolulu cemetery and then were identified after being unearthed in 2015.
