The USS COD is back in Cleveland after traveling more than nine hours through Lake Erie.
The USS COD will stay docked there and will continue serving as a memorial museum. Wednesday’s trip from Erie is most likely the last for the World War II submarine for a while.
The COD has been berthed as a museum ship along Cleveland’s shore since 1976.
“It’s a once in a lifetime chance to see apart of history, visit our port here, and I think it’s, in my own way, [a way] to honor those that have gone before us and pay tribute to those brave men and women,” said Mike Kabasinski, Erie resident.
A homecoming ceremony will be held at 1201 N Marginal Rd, Cleveland, OH 44114 on Sunday, August 22nd at 1 p.m. to celebrate the WWII submarine’s return. Cake and refreshments will be served.
