Tribute to WWII U.S. Submarines

During WWII U.S. Navy submarines accounted for over half the total ships sunk of the opposing forces. One of the Google Earth forum moderators put together an excellent tribute in the form of a well-constructed Google Earth file which marks the location of 52 U.S. submarines which sunk in the act of duty during the war. Each placemark was carefully researched and provides details about the ship, photos, and a list of the men who were lost.

The author of this GE File is known as "Chief_Sparky, EMC(SS) USN, ret.". Here is the post where he released this collection. He obviously has a personal as well as historical interest in this information. And as one of Google Earth forum moderators he was well positioned to do such an excellent job.
