John Abele: Search for the USS Grunion
The USS Grunion was a Gato-class submarine named for a small fish of the silversides family, indigenous to the western American coast. Under the command of Lieutenant Commander Mannert L. Abele, she launched on December 22nd, 1941 with 70 crew members aboard. On July 30, 1942, the submarine reported intensive antisubmarine activity and was ordered back to Dutch Harbor Naval Operating Base in the Aleutian Islands off of mainland Alaska. The Grunion was never heard from nor seen again.
Abele and his brothers launched a hunt for the Grunion and in August, 2006, armed with heavy duty side scan sonar, about a mile down in the Aleutian chain, the team located an object that appeared to be the right size and shape for the vessel. Then in August of 2007, armed with an ROV containing many cameras and lights they went back and on August 17 found the wreck of the Grunion at a depth of a little over 1000 meters.
