Gulf of Thailand (June 17, 2006) - Sailors stationed aboard the salvage ship USS Salvor (ARS 52) stand at parade rest during a memorial at sea honoring the 86 Sailors, who were lost in the submarine USS Lagarto (SS 371) during World War II. 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.
