WWII diesel boat is on display at freedom park presently. The Nebraska is still commissioned, believe it has been, or is presently being converted to an SSGN. The Omaha was decommed in the Mid 90's. It cost a small fortune to get a Nuke boat anywhere as a museum. Would love it if it did show up here though. Great boat, great crew, numerous major spec ops on that boat. Lots of cold war history and such. It was hands down the best sub I ever served on. They've let freedom park go to hell. Lots of the vets and active duty here are formulating a plan to get it squared away for the public with our time and efforts. Probably take a year or so...dman
