Every time I read something new about the end of the war in the Pacific, especially Okinawa, I am stunned by how ferocious the combat was, even at such a late date in the war. The losses on both sides were staggering and few people remember... -Andy
    Yeh, don't know too much about the war in the Pacific, but I've had a long time interest in U-boats, mostly in the war of the Atlantic, losses on both sides were staggering and I believe are more diveable!

    Regards...Paul

    Hi Andy,
    Sorry for the late reply.
    Yes, USS Emmons was a destroyer. Please refer to the following site.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Emmons_(DD-457)

    We observed one minute of silence for the war dead before diving.

    Regards,
    -Masa
