    I got to tour the U-505 when I was a kid.  On the way to Chicago they sidelined it and took it into the Milwaukee River for display.

    My cousin's husband-to-be was part of the guard/tour detail assigned to the sub.  It definitely wasn't as pretty as it is now - it was black and full of holes.  When I saw it later in Chicago I couldn't believe it was the same vessel.
