Honor Mission
Welborn L. Ashby, POW/MIA
USN
Calhoun and Beaver Dam, Kentucky – 05-27-21 and 05-31-21

ABOUT THE MISSION:

Navy Fireman 3rd Class Welborn L. Ashby was assigned to the battleship USS West Virginia, which was moored at Ford Island, Pearl Harbor. On December 7, 1941 the USS West Virginia sustained multiple torpedo hits, but timely counter-flooding measure taken by the crew prevented it from capsizing, and it came to rest on the shallow harbor floor. The attack resulted in the death of 106 crewman including Ashby. Ashby’s name is recorded on the Walls of the Missing at the Punchbowl, along with others who are missing from WWII. A rosette will be placed next to his name to indicate he has been accounted for.
