    It’s nice that a trumpet was recovered from USS Houston. My Uncle Edilberto Panganiban (USN) was s musician on that (USS Houston) ship when it was sanked. He was one the casualties. We wondered if that was his trumpet. He was with the brass section of the band. Our family would want to know if there’s any pictures of him with the band and or anything about him.
