Possible site in Long Beach

The Long Beach area is another location the Navy Support Museum could be located. Near the Queen Mary Memorial is a small mooring area that could be used for the Oiler USS Kawishiwi AO-146. At the bow of Queen Mary is a Soviet Submarine. If that submarine can be located there, why couldn't our oiler. See: LONG BEACH AREA
