USS Stewart Finally Back On Duty With The Submarine Cavalla

In April Galveston's popular World War II sub the USS Cavalla reopened after fixing damage caused by Hurricane Ike. Its companion ship, the USS Stewart -- a destroyer escort -- was still closed, however, due to the storm surge that lifted the boats and then settled them back down a little bent out of shape.

The Stewart is back in action as of today, though, and once again Seawolf Park has both its boats ready for tours.

The tours are highly recommended, by the way, for anyone with any interest in The Big One. It's an eye-opening look at how sailors lived and fought back in the day.
