Spend the Night Aboard USS COBIA!

See updated information below.

USS Cobia (SS 245) was launched on November 28, 1943. In June 1944, she began the first of six war patrols in which she sank thirteen Japanese vessels for a total of 20,000 tons of enemy shipping. By July 1944, Cobia had established herself in the annals of World War II sub history by attacking an enemy convoy bound for Japanese-held Iwo Jima.

The Wisconsin Maritime Museum's USS Cobia Overnight Education Program offers people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience first-hand a taste of submarine life. The program offers not only an educational alternative to the traditional camp-out, it also facilitates an appreciation of history and insight into a unique time in America's past. Boy Scouts have the opportunity to earn towards the American Heritage Merit Badge during their visit.

Troop 2 has reserved the dates of February 22 - 23 2014 for this trip. See the attached handout. If you are attending please complete this waiver prior to the trip.
