The Bulkeyboo Show started this petition to South Carolina General Assembly

The South Carolina General Assembly will be voting on June 25 to spend millions in the sinking of this piece of US history. They will be sinking it to "create an artificial coral reef". While coral reefs are very important, they are not as important as our history. The Clamagore is a symbol of what the US did against the threat of communism. This is something that younger generations should know about and respect. Patriot's Point(the place where the Clamagore is kept) is a place of remembrance and learning where South Carolina's students go to do just that. The Clamagore was built in 1945 but was upgraded numerous times until she was a GUPPY III type sub. She was finally decommissioned in 1973 and was moved to South Carolina in 1981 and has been in SC ever since. She is the last known GUPPY type sub in existence. Because of this, many SC students at some point in their academic career, will take a field trip to Patriot's Point and see the Clamagore. They will learn about the way she works and why she was upgraded and sent into the field- communism! She is due to be destroyed later this year but YOU can help! By signing this petition you move us one step closer to saving this part of history.  If we destroy this part of our history, we will destroy our children's chance to learn about this volatile time in American History.
