Had a memorable visit on the the Bowfin. In 1986, while on a mission to CincPac, we had a day off and got to the Bowfin as the retired Chief custodian there was closing up. Two Army SF guys don't show up often there and we hit him up with some WWII sub questions as he was locking up and he stopped. "You guys really that interested , I'll take you on a tour" and so he did , just us two and blistering him with questions. Then he went and got a cooler of beer out of his truck and we sat on the Bowfin as sun set over Pearl Harbor and he told us submarine sea stores until it got dark and the beer long gone. Yeah, I'm glad Bowfin is getting some TLC and be there for future generations to learn about WWII submarines and the brave men that served aboard those glorious boats. Saluting you Chief, thanks for everything.

Saving history is important, even more so in these days that have evil forces wanting to erase it and replace it with their
version of history. Surviving subs are historically significant , they need to be preserved and protected.
