"After Pearl Harbor, there were soldiers who were trapped below deck as their ships sank. Unfortunately, the ships didn't flood, so they were trapped below deck for days until they died of starvation. The navy knew it was happening, but they had no way to go down and get them, due to limitations (couldn't get the right tools, ship might blow up… I can't remember the actual reason), so they instead reported those men among the initial death toll from the bombings. Men on guard would beg not to be placed near those ships, because they could hear them banging on the hull for help. Eventually, the navy managed to get down to retrieve the bodies, but only after everyone had died. Apparently they had marked the passage of time on the wall, and they had survived at least a week. Most of the families of those men were never made aware that it happened."
