USS Houston Survivor Harry Kelly passed away recently. Mr. Kelly's family requested that the dive team place a photo and Harry's Navy cap on the Houston, a task that the team was honored to do.

Harry Kelly as well as the other survivors of the battle of the Java Sea, and those who died there, represent perhaps America's greatest generation. We remember their lives and grieve the loss of these warriors.
