I enjoyed reading that. What I found interesting was the quote that the U-Boat "radioed a nearby American base about the need for rescue ships" after the sinking.

Yeah, it was different with honor back then, some still had visions of war being waged with honor. Remember stories of the fighter aircraft, where instead shooting down an injured pilot the enemy saluted them for fighting good.
Now a days the pilots generally do not see their enemy, radar selects the highest threat and can fire the missile from miles away.

Sadly, war has become the ultimate video game.

There are still too many soldiers who come back from war with scars, both physical and emotional, that never fully heal.

But for the general public, we see video of a drone strike with thermal imaging, and the true casualties are never seen. The number of our soldiers killed in battle is less than who die in a weekend in most major cities. OUR being defined by which ever side you are on, of course.

I worked with a Vet a few years ago whose wife, also a Vet, had committed suicide. When he described his job in Iraq, cataloging the various insurgents who blew themselves up, it was just another reminder of how awful war really is.

I am always amazed with how they are able to locate these undersea wrecks and often how well preserved they are.
