The U.S. Navy used 288 diesel submarines in WWII. Most were stationed in the Pacific theater to fight back the advances of the Japanese. Approximately 16 thousand American men served on these ships and suffered the highest fatality rate of any U.S. naval unit. Despite numerous problems with engines and weapons, Fleet Submarines accounted for 55 percent of Japanese merchant and naval ship losses. This is a brief history of the U.S. Navy’s diesel submarine with a focus on the Pacific theater in WWII. Instructor: Dave Hobbins, a retired professor from the University of Maine at Fort Kent.
Using videos and discussion, this course will explore questions about democracy ranging from basic to more complex and thorny issues: What is democracy? Why does it matter? What role does it play in our government? What are the constitutional issues? What are benefits and risks? What are threats to it that pundits keep warning us about? And more as the interests of the class dictate.

If there is anything you don’t see, message Julie and she can usually come pretty close to what you want! A little different than in times past- full payment will be made at the time of the order- this is to prevent contact during the pick up process. Thank you so much- I’ll see you “virtually” soon!
