The U.S. Navy's last non-nuclear, fast-attack submarine, the USS Blueback SS-581. The Blueback was the first battle-ready class of submarines to use the teardrop hull. It was in official operation throughout the Pacific Ocean for 31 years. The USS Blueback served in the entertainment industry too! It appeared in the hit movie The Hunt for Red October and an episode of Hawaii Five-O and has been used as a location for a Discovery Channel documentary and various commercials.

The Meditation Chapel at The Grotto in Portland, Oregon. I used to go here 2-3 times a week. An amazingly peaceful and spiritual place.

On May 22, 2012, a formal dedication ceremony with 135 people in attendance was held for the Chinese Remembrance Memorial in Hells Canyon, Idaho. With respect to the land — part Nez Perce country at the time of the crime — the text of the memorial included three languages: English, Nez Perce, and Chinese. The memorial read in those three languages, “Chinese Massacre Cove. Site of the 1887 massacre of as many as 34 Chinese Gold miners. No one was held accountable.”
