    We found one of your battleships!
    the Ontario went down on Oct. 31, 1780, with a garrison of 60 British soldiers, a crew of about 40, mostly Canadians, and possibly about 30 American war prisoners.

    She's laying in 500 ft of water in lake Ontario...

    This is really interesting to me. I love reading up on shipwrecks. I have read alot about the "Edmond Fitzgerald" and have been to Whitefish Point to the museum that has "Edmond Fitzgerald's" bell. The museum was really cool and the 'presence' of all the artifacts from E.F. is very moving.

    U.S. sub found

    Well, we have found a long missing sub.

    U.S. Navy Confirms Lost WWII Sub Found Off Aleutians

    All onboard were lost, but like all US servicemen/woman who have died in service to their country, none died "for nothing".

    A moment of silence, please.
