    the following are sound recordings by the USS Sealion sinking the Japanese battleship Kongo. what is really astounding is the calm "doing the job" attitude by the crew that really illusrates the proffesionalism of our armed forces to this day. could you be so calm under similar circumstance??

    Thank you. It's a little tough to make out at times, but is a wonderful record of the professionalism and courage of our seamen.
