One of the few Fleet ("Gato") class submarines remaining for public view, the USS Cobia (SS-245), sits today on Lake Michigan in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, as a National Historic Landmark, a tribute to the men of the "Silent Service" and the workers who built the subs, which were so instrumental in defeating the Japanese Imperial Navy and the German Reich in the Second World War.
