April 11th National Submarine Day

It definitely takes a very special person to serve on a submarine. Even in the modern submarines the quarters are tight and you may not see daylight for months at a time. Submarines have been around since before the American Revolution. The first successful submarine was the Turtle in 1775, although it was only did minor damage. During the Civil War submarines sank themselves more often than another ship. Today submarines patrol the world, ready to strike at any moment.
