Twins killed together to be buried together | Navy Times

The remains of twins who joined the Navy together in 1938 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 caskets, two 21-gun salutes, two invocations, and two flags presented to their surviving sister, 93-year-old Betty Pitsch of Lincoln.

Her DNA contribution helped bring her older brothers home.
