On December 7, 2003 watch a show on The History Channel called "Deep Sea Detectives." áIt is about the discovery of Midget A last year.  They worked with HURL out in Hawaii and have some really good footage of the boat, so I think this will be a good show.

They also flew flew three Ward survivors out for extensive interviews, probably the last time these guys will go out there.

Ken Swedberg, who manned the AA gun aft of the #1 gun was very pleased with the production crew; it should be well worth taping.

I saw this show for the first time last night. I found it very interesting to listen to the actual participants from the Ward. It took 60+ years for them to get there due respect. At the end they added commentary on what should be done with the sub. I found this a bit overboard. Personally they should keep it where it lies. Similar to the Arizona and Utah it's a reminder of the sacrifices of war. For some reason we think we need to raise these artifacts and display as a memorial. Knowing that a sub and crew lies off the coast should serve as distant reminder.

Very true; those crew members were submariners and it is fitting that their resting place is under the surface. But there are some that can't resist the temptation!
