USS Wolverine (IX-64) and commissioned in August of 1942, the vessel, which lacked the hangar decks and defensive weaponry of a conventional aircraft carrier, would be little more than a floating runway.

The U-505 is a U-boat that was captured by the Americans near Bermuda. After constant depth-charging, its captain blew his brains out with a pistol and the men surrendered but failed to scuttle the sub. It was rescued, along with its Enigma code secrets. It lay rotting at a pier until 1947 when the Captain who captured it bought it for a dollar and piloted it up the St Lawrence Seaway to Chicago. It was put on wheels and moved to the Museum of Science. The big diesels were started up…

Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial, Concord, California - Aerial photograph in early 1944. This shows utility and personnel piers extending toward the two sections of Seal Island.

The Cornbelt Fleet (carrier training ships of the Great Lakes) at anchor at Chicago's Navy Pier. By 1943, the navy needed even more carrier pilots trained, so in May the Wolverine was joined by another flattop, the newly refurbished USS Sable.  This newer carrier had been converted from the 518-foot-long paddle-wheel liner Greater Buffalo, the former pride of the Detroit and Cleveland Navigation Company’s Lake Erie fleet.
