This Sim really gets you hooked on the historical and personel side to WWII.

I had the honor of playing Pipes at the WW2 Submariner's Memorial at the U.S. Navy base in Long Beach CA. this Veteran's Day. For each sub lost during the war, a rose was tossed into the pool, the bell tolled and an account of the loss was read. Then a wreath was placed on each of the stone markers (they look like headstones) for each sub. It's very sobering to hear so many "went down with all hands lost". Very grim duty indeed. Not many vet's left theses days, we are reaching an end of an era.
