Seattle Firm May Have Found Lost WWII Sub

The Boston Globe reports that a Seattle firm, surveyors Williams and Associates, may have found the World War II submarine USS Grunion off the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. The warship was lost without a trace in July 1942, and the sons of the captain have sought her whereabouts ever since. The Globe article was reprinted in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Here's a link to the Grunion Search blog with sonar images. (The blog is photo heavy, so it takes a long time to load.)
