Default Help Restore the USS Ling SS-297

Veterans try to save World War II-era submarine berthed along shallow, NJ river

Funds raised will benefit:

I hope some members here can help keep this WWII boat afloat

Thank you.

First priority should be to move it out of that muck hole it's in. So sad.
