Last July, Salvatore Todaro (S 526), the first Type U212A submarine, made the first Italian submarine visit to the U.S. since World War II. Before leaving the U.S., the Todaro will participate in New York City's Columbus Day celebrations.

Congratulations, NavyCS, all of your answers were correct (we let your spelling of Seawolf slide, due to abundant instances of mispellings found on the www and the fact you were never a submariner).

Very impressive!
