    World War II-era submarine flooded by vandals in New Jersey


    Vandals flood WWII-era submarine

    Suspects opened the hatches to the submarine, flooding the New Jersey Naval Museum.

    A group of New Jersey vandals this weekend did what the Nazis couldn't — sink the USS Ling. At least partially.


    The intruders boarded the World War II-era vessel, which is berthed in a New Jersey river, and opened underwater hatches, flooding the sub. The thieves also stole several plaqu


    Navy veteran Jack Brown, a trustee on the Submarine Memorial Association, which is responsible for maintaining the USS Ling, told FOX5 he was at the New Jersey Naval Museum in Hackensack on Sunday when he noticed something was off.



    "I noticed the boat looked very low in the water," Brown said. "[Vandals] cut through with bolt cutters, I guess, got in and opened all the hatches. The equipment and artifacts inside are ruined."


    The Ling, a Balao class-submarine, was commissioned on June 8, 1945 and was the last of the fleet boats that patrolled U.S. shores during World War II, according to the Historic Naval Ships Association.

    "Ling made one Atlantic patrol before the war ended," the group notes. "Decommissioned in 1946, Ling became part of the Atlantic Reserve Fleet until reactivation as a submarine training vessel in 1960."


    Besides having the Ling inundated with 10 feet of water, officials said four bronze plaques that commemorated the more than 3,000 Navy officers who died on U.S. submarines during World War II were also taken. Hackensack Police have launched an investigation into the incident.


    "Taking those plaques, dedicated to people who never came back from war, lost in submarines, is just deplorable," Army veteran Joe Schuler told FOX5.

    The vandalism came as the group was planning to move the artifacts after being evicted from the site due to a nearby development project.


    The museum's president, Gilbert De Laat, said volunteers are still trying to figure out how to clean up the vessel, which could cost thousands of dollars just to drain.


    "People today aren't recognizing the value of artifacts that represent our history," he told FOX5. "Three thousand lives were lost in submarine service — it was really the thing that changed the outcome of World War II."


    Hackensack City Councilman Leonardo Battaglia told NorthJersey.com the city doesn't have the financial resources to move the vessel.


    "I don't know if the city is in the position to spend millions of dollars to do something," he said. "The city doesn't have the money. We're trying to get tax relief for residents."

  • I'm sure a couple of Teens just went around turning valves. It would take training and was not fully scuttled.

  • So pretty much impossible that it was a few teenagers out for kicks, and this involved people who had a serious understanding of all things naval ? Inside job ?


    "Museum officials, whose lease was terminated in 2016, agreed to vacate the property by Tuesday, after being served an eviction notice. But they say they have nowhere else to go."


    It sure does put up a red flag.

  • someone had to know how to do this. i can't believe in this day and age that there's no cameras there. if/when they find these shitbags, they should chain their asses to that sub, power it up, and take it out to sea.

  • I'm sure the hull needs serious repair to be in any shape of sea worthy.

  • Tampa had one of those deals (NOT the sinking part) A Korean era diesel, the USS Requin. The thing sat there rotting for a couple decades tied up on the river dock downtown, with a few $5 tours conducted each day. (Really didn't pay for its upkeep) Was finally towed off to Baltimore

    Notice how Christine Blasey Ford was always referred to as Dr Blasey Ford by the media, but Vanessa Tyson who also has a PhD isn’t referred to as Dr Tyson by them
    We see you


  • And the Battleship Texas is rotting away as we speak. Sta in the Bay of Houston in salt water for 45 years straight without so much as a patch. Now they be cryin it's sinkin. Gee, ya think?

  • scuttling valves

    do they have those on submarine? I know there are valves that are used to submerged and such.
