U.S.S. Cavalla

Seawolf Park on Pelican Island, next to Galveston, is the permanent home of the U.S.S. Cavalla, a World War II submarine of the Gato class. It is similar in size to the U.S.S. Seawolf, a Sargo class submarine that the park is named for. The Seawolf was lost at sea, probably under friendly fire.

Bill served on a submarine tender in the 1970s, and worked on many WW II subs as well as newer nuclear subs. He had been aboard them many times, machining specially-fit replacement parts, but this is the first time I’ve been on one.
