    USS Silversides (SS-236) received twelve battle stars for World War II service, and was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation. She is credited with sinking 23 ships, the third-most of any allied World War II submarine, behind only the USS Tang and USS Tautog. The tonnage of the ships sunk by Silversides amounted to 90,080 tons, second only to the Tang's total. Judged by such standards, Silversides has the most prolific combat record of any still-extant American submarine. Coast Guard Cutter McLane and a the upper deck of a ship is also on same site. Even if you don't want to pay for the tour this worth seeing.

    I lived in Holland, MI for a few years. Its a few miles south of Muskegon. I never did make it to her. Then again, I am '6"5 so I am sure a sub tour wouldn't be the easiest for me.
