This Shipwreck Just Discovered In Alaska Was From The Only WWII Battle In North America

Alaska’s Aleutian Islands were the site of a recent discovery, one of serious historical importance. The USS Abner Read served in WWII when the battle took to the ground at Kiska Island, the only World War II battle fought on North American soil. Scientists from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, and the University of Delaware found the shipwreck last month during a research mission. The rear portion of the ship made its final resting place in the Bering Sea while the rest of the resilient ship was repaired and went back to the war effort.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
