Yeah, yeah, I know this isn't "new" news. Still, being as it's somewhat "local" for me, Ultraquiet's resident Hawaii sailor, I had to chime in.
Honestly, given how busy I've been lately, I'd not even heard about it. But my building manager, himself a retired diesel boat COB, clued me in to the finding of the USS Lagarto (SS-371) near Thailand.
I'm sure the families are elated to finally know what became of the Lagarto. And at the next Submarine Ball here in Pearl Harbor we'll certainly have a special mention of Lagarto when the bells are tolled for our shipmates on eternal patrol.
