Submarine from the carrier - Mount Pleasant

Submarine from the carrier

Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum

We visited Patriot Point with our son, grandchildren and daughter-in-law when we were staying at the marina next door in November of 2000.

At Patriot Point is the USS YORKTOWN (CV-10), the Fighting Lady. Moored next to her is USS LAFFEY (DD-724), a World War II destroyer. Also moored alongside are the United States Coast Guard cutter INGHAM (WHEC-35), and the diesel attack submarine USS CLAMAGORE (SS-343).

Because we waited until after our DIL got off work, it was late in the day when we visited and we only got to see the carrier and the submarine. Bob was disgusted with the carrier exhibits (he served on this ship) because a lot of the planes on the deck, and a lot of the exhibits really had nothing to do with the actual Yorktown. He was happier about the submarine, which hadn't been mucked about so much.
