    The last resting place of WW2 submarine the USS Grayback is found off the coast of Okinawa

    Missing WWII submarine the USS Grayback is FOUND more than 75 years after it went missing | Daily Mail Online

    Researchers with Lost 52 Project are dedicated to finding the final resting places of the 52 U.S. submarines lost in action during WWII

    A lost American war submarine that was sunk by Japanese forces more than 75 years ago and claimed the lives of 80 servicemen has been miraculously found after researchers realized war records mistranslated the coordinates of its last sighting.

    The U.S.S. Grayback SS-208, hailed as one of the most successful American submarines of World War II, was patrolling the South Pacific and South China Sea when it mysteriously disappeared in February 1944.

    A fitting tribute on Veterans' Day. If you are passing through Groton, CT, just off I-95, there is a national submarine memorial for those subs lost in WW2. Most were built in Groton at Electric Boat Co. See National Submarine Memorial - 2019 All You Need to Know BEFORE You Go (with Photos) Museums - Yelp Nearby you can visit our first nuclear sub, the U.S.S. Nautilus.

    Awesome. Thanks for the link. Not many people know or remember that after the disaster at Pearl Harbor, and aside from the Doolittle Raid off the USS Hornet, the main line of defense and attack from the US until Midway was the Silent Service.
