How far would you go to find out exactly what happened to a lost loved one? When the USS Grunion submarine sank mysteriously in 1942, 70 fathers, sons, uncles and brothers were gone without a trace…or were they? In a search that has spanned over half a century, the Grunion was found on the bottom of the Bering Sea thanks to the collaboration of numerous families, friends and historians from around the world. John Abele, the retired founding Chairman of Boston Scientific, and his brothers were able to locate the final resting place of their father and the rest of the crew and became that much closer to discovering what happened to the USS Grunion. This talk contains incredible pictures and video of the submarine.
