The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that a previously unidentified shipwreck on the seabed near the Farallon Islands, off California, has been confirmed to be that of the USS Conestoga, a US Navy oceangoing tug that vanished in 1921.
Conestoga was the last US Navy surface ship to be lost during peacetime. The wreck was found in 2009 during a sonar survey of the area, and identified during an exploratory mission in 2014.
The NOAA has discussed the discovery in a press release, including several downloadable images.
I think we should also remember the 56 crew members of the tug, all of whom vanished with her.
Their loved ones never knew what had happened to them. May they and their families rest in peace.
