The WWII American submarine was a war casualty
Any war leads to loss of lives and assets. World War Two was no exception and all sides suffered losses. USS Grayback was one of the casualties. The Japanese sunk it in 1944 and an underwater exploration project has now located the lost sub. It was lying off the coast of Okinawa at a depth of approximately 1,400ft. The team used latest drone technology to zero in on the wreckage. This American submarine had sunk at least 14 ships during the war, and was one of 52 subs lost in action.
World War Two is history
The scenario post WWII reveals a basic intention among countries to avoid direct confrontation. Wars do not help any cause and, in an effort to go one up on others, there is only destruction. It is interesting to note that Japan has fought against the United States during WWII but today it is an ally.
