Muskegon's USS Silversides Submarine Museum

The USS Silversides (SS-236) was built at Mare Navy Yard in Vallejo, California, and commissioned December 15, 1941. The Silversides is credited with sinking the third most ships of any Allied submarine during the war, with 23. Only the USS Tang and USS Taulog sank more. //// After the war, it was stationed at Chicago and used by the US Naval Reserve until 1969 and then went to Muskegon in 1987. Today it is a submarine museum. //// Right now, it has a new USS Flier submarine exhibit, a submarine that was sunk in the war. //// --GreGen
