      There will not be repatriation. It is a United States war grave not to be disturbed, those that went down on the Grayback will rest where they are in eternal peace. Forever. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

      not to be snarky or flippant but better late than never right? 👍

      That's amazing.


      I have high respect for the brave young men of the US Navy’s “Silent Service” 🇺🇸🙏

    12. unclebugspayton

      “Closure” ok!

    13. ssplintergirl

      They should open the hatch and see whats inside.

      Over due on patrol, God bless the heroes.

    16. nekonohige2

      It is recorded that Japanese bomber planes sunk this submarine which sunk many Japanese vessels including "Konan-maru" which carried 700 normal citizens whose lives were instantly lost with the attack of this submarine.

    17. Guy Fawkes

      Thank you sailers, I love you all and I look forward to seeing you come home bright eyed and bushy tailed at last.

      “Service person?” They were men

    19. ProGreen LAWN

      Found last year!? We now hearing about it

    20. JamieTheIrvine

      I found my dad after 20 years outside a shop

    21. Alex Williamson

      “Repatriate” what? I imagine it will be left as a war grave as they do with our (Royal Navy) subs lost on patrol? #stillonpatrol

    22. Fenrir

      Repatriation? There’s no bodies left. Even if they were this is a war grave they’re not allowed to even touch it let alone pull it apart (430 metres below you’ll be lucky to even get an image of the inside) and recover bodies. Not possible. No going to happen.

      I say now in rememberence of this discovery for Azur Lane to put in USS Grayback in the game to give some pride to the Eagle Union

    25. Arnold Stollar

      Men. Inside

    26. GaMeRfReAkLIVE

      I fail to see how this is closure. Its not like there were many things that could have taken place. "We now know what happend". Yeah as it turns out, the sumarine not coming back to port on time means that it was sunk. As opposed to the more obvious theory that all the crew decided to not only desert but to also steal and hide a multimillion dollar submarine. I can appreciate them reporting the finding but good lord is there no reason to be interjecting emotion here or acting as if some greatystery about what happend.has been solved. And theyre not even going to credit the man for his discovery? God damn i hate news outlets

    27. Bill Lombard

      Never forget these brave boys sacrifice

    28. BH OUTLAW

      Crazy how this was on veterens day

      Rest in Peace to the crew.

      That's amazing

    32. TXMEDRGR

      I recently toured the WWII submarine USS Drum in Mobile, Alabama. Those old diesel submarine sailors had true grit to go down in what is essentially a big metal pipe. God bless them and their families.

    34. Ben Doggett

      "begin the process of repatriation" it's a little to late for that, don't think there is anything left to repatriate even they wanted to.

      1. Fenrir

        frtard what that’s just something you’d assume?

      2. frtard

        I guess you didn't hear the "presumably"

      3. Fenrir

        That bit got me. Surely it’s a war grave and they’re not allowed to touch. Also how does he expect they do it? Just open the hatch and wait for all the bodies to float home? How are they even going to open that sub 430 metres below the surface?

    35. bocoy noiu

      Rest In Peace sailors.

    36. Earl of Wickshire

      "off by one digit, be careful". Careful? It’s like she’s half listening and then just scrambles to say something at the end.

    55. Re.

      I want to know if there are the bones of the men inside, and would they be removed.

      1. sirderam1

        Very unlikely, salt water tends to dissolve bones and its been there for 75 years. More respectful to designate the wreck as a war grave and have a US Navy ship conduct the service for burial at sea over the location. Leave the souls who perished with the boat at peace.

    68. Jason Learakos

      They should bring it back up and put it next to the battleships at Pearl Harbor.

      1. anamaria Alaba

        It is considered a war grave and the US Military will not want it disturbed. After 75 years in salt water that steel submarine might brake up into many pieces if an attempt was made to raise it. Raising submerged ships from the seabed creates many uneven forces on the structure even when done with great care.

    69. Just.

      if buzzfeed unsolved makes a video on this cause veterans day. this could be their first ever solved unsolved mystery

      1. Just.

        @Alpha 2-1 true but atleast it would've been like. sorta solved cause the boat is found. anyway they could collect info on how it sank

      2. Alpha 2-1

        They wouldn’t have solved it though
