Interesting history, check out the Japanese midget submarines.

Knew about the base and had seen some pics before, but that collection was great.

Cheers,

I served aboard USCGC CONFIDENCE (WMEC 619) out of Kodiak, AK from July 81 - July 83. We pulled into Kiska twice, and I went to see the midget submarine. Here's a picture of me in the sub.
