    There will not be repatriation. It is a United States war grave not to be disturbed, those that went down on the Grayback will rest where they are in eternal peace. Forever. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

    It is recorded that Japanese bomber planes sunk this submarine which sunk many Japanese vessels including "Konan-maru" which carried 700 normal citizens whose lives were instantly lost with the attack of this submarine.

    “Repatriate” what? I imagine it will be left as a war grave as they do with our (Royal Navy) subs lost on patrol? #stillonpatrol

  • Fenrir
    Fenrir 27 days ago

    Repatriation? There’s no bodies left. Even if they were this is a war grave they’re not allowed to even touch it let alone pull it apart (430 metres below you’ll be lucky to even get an image of the inside) and recover bodies. Not possible. No going to happen.

    I fail to see how this is closure. Its not like there were many things that could have taken place.
    "We now know what happend". Yeah as it turns out, the sumarine not coming back to port on time means that it was sunk. As opposed to the more obvious theory that all the crew decided to not only desert but to also steal and hide a multimillion dollar submarine.
    I can appreciate them reporting the finding but good lord is there no reason to be interjecting emotion here or acting as if some greatystery about what happend.has been solved.
    And theyre not even going to credit the man for his discovery? God damn i hate news outlets

    I recently toured the WWII submarine USS Drum in Mobile, Alabama. Those old diesel submarine sailors had true grit to go down in what is essentially a big metal pipe. God bless them and their families.

    "begin the process of repatriation"

    it's a little to late for that, don't think there is anything left to repatriate even they wanted to.

      That bit got me. Surely it’s a war grave and they’re not allowed to touch. Also how does he expect they do it? Just open the hatch and wait for all the bodies to float home? How are they even going to open that sub 430 metres below the surface?

      Very unlikely, salt water tends to dissolve bones and its been there for 75 years. More respectful to designate the wreck as a war grave and have a US Navy ship conduct the service for burial at sea over the location. Leave the souls who perished with the boat at peace.
