Man Needs Millions to Bring Corpus Christi Submarine to Town

CORPUS CHRISTI - A Navy veteran says it would cost $10-$15 million to bring the USS City of Corpus Christi to the coastal bend as a floating museum.

James Fitzgerald served in the US Navy aboard a submarine from 1960-1966, and says it was a chance of a lifetime. That is why he wants to bring sub to the coastal bend so that people can get a tour of what it is like to be aboard a submarine.

He says the USS Corpus Christi will be decomissioned in 2020 so the city has an opportunity to bring it from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii to be placed on display next to the USS Lexington.
