Gulf of Thailand (June 14, 2006) - Chief Navy Diver Jon Sommers assigned to the salvage ship USS Salvor (ARS 52) searches for an identifying marker on the forward capstan of what is believed to be the submarine USS Lagarto (SS 371). Divers from USS Salvor (ARS 52) conducted six-days of diving to positively identify USS Lagarto as part of the Thailand phase of the exercise Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training, or CARAT. Divers will send photographs and video of the submarine to the Naval Historical Center in Washington for further analysis. CARAT is an annual series of bilateral maritime training exercises between the United States and six Southeast Asia nations designed to build relationships and enhance the operational readiness of the participating forces.
