SS Cynthia Olson

I know this is going to be a bit of a history lesson, some lesser known facts about Pearl Harbor.  Did you know the first ship that Japanese sunk with a small Japanese Sub, was a civilian Cruise ship the SS Cynthia Olson?  Most people are unaware of t hat fact.   U.S. Navy later sunk another Japanese Sub trying to sneak into Pearl Harbor before the Japanese planes came in for t heir attack.   More interesting history of the attack minute by minute can be found on t his website West Point.org website J-26 Japanese Submarine
