A photo of the launching of the USS Robalo at the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Co on May 9, 1943. The Robalo was a submarine that was deployed to the Pacific Theater. She was lost and presumed sunk in 1944. There were four survivors who said that she was sunk in July of 1944 near Palwan Island in the Philippines.

This is an awesome photo of the launch, courtesy of the National Archives.
