We visited the USS Clamagore as part of our Patriots Point tour. The sub is the least impressive of the 3 on show, and its rusting bodywork is not that good . The boat needs a lot of TLC to be restored to previous glories!!

This Memorial was moving, as it made me think of those who serve/have served in a submarine. It is an easy walk around the "buried" sub, and it is a good place for pictures. Should be a part of any Patriot's Point visit.

This is a must see part of an all day hands on history experience. A quiet and peaceful walk that took us about half an hour. The markers along the walk sparked much conversation with the kids and provided for a lot of reflection.
