    I was just about to post this. What an amazing find. I am shocked at how good the Lady Lex looks but very happy to see they were able to locate this. As a Navy man, I love the heritage and history of the US Navy and honor all those that came before me. Maybe one reason I want to become a technical wreck penetration instructor one day.

    Sadly, it is much too deep to dive or I would be finding a way to get there ASAP.

    Paul Allen has a recent knack and a streak going finding these significant WWII historic wrecks, now almost rivaling Robert Ballard. Next stop, I bet he's gonna go back to the Solomons to find the sunken carriers USS Wasp (CV-7) and USS Hornet (CV-8) too.
