On June 22, a 306-foot destroyer escort called the USS Samuel B Roberts — known also as the Sammy B — was finally found. Where it was found makes it the deepest shipwreck ever discovered. At a depth of 22,621 feet, the vessel was found in the Philippine Sea.
The ship sank in October of 1944, during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. A particular battle of that larger battle was the Battle off Samar, which was one of the largest naval battles in history. An Imperial Japanese Navy flotilla proved to be the final undoing of the Samuel B Roberts.
