Retired U.S. Navy Sonar Technician, Submarine, Chief (SS) Keith Seiser, explains about decking material, salvage plates, brail markings and the piping underneath the deck of the USS Cavalla (SS 244) for a family visiting Seawolf Park in Galveston, Texas, April 21, 2018. The park, which is located on Pelican Island, is dedicated to the USS Seawolf (SS 197) a Sargo-class submarine that was mistakenly sunk by U.S. Navy forces in 1944 during World War II. The 83 crewmembers and 17 Army personnel are still on Eternal Patrol. Seiser is a volunteer with the Cavalla Historical Foundation and served on the USS Ckanagore (SS 343), USS SkipJack (SSN 585), USS Nautilus (SSN 571), USS Pintado (SSN 672), USS Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 709), USS Guardfish (SSN 612) and the USS Atlanta (SSN 712) during his time in the U.S. Navy. (Courtesy photo by Jeff Walston)
