Celebrating Submarine Day

(Youtube)

Today is Submarine Day. Is it a celebration of 12-inch sandwiches or underwater boats? Apparently it’s for the establishment of the U.S. Submarine Force in 1900. There was an experimental submarine that the Confederates built during the Civil War – the H. L. Hunley – it was only 40 feet long and the eight men inside powered it by sitting two by two across from each other and turning a crank to run the propeller. After the only successful attack on a Union ship, the Hunley was attacked and destroyed.

Some of the most famous submarine movies of all time –

  • Das Boot
  • Hunt for Red October
  • Crimson Tide
  • The Enemy Below
  • Run Silent, Run Deep
  • 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
  • Torpedo Run

Among the most famous submarines in history – the USS Nautilus – the first nuclear powered submarine and the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.

Not sure if it’ll work but you can ask for a discount at a sub shop today in celebration of Submarine Day. Or take your favorite girl and park along the river and watch the submarine races.
