Amazing preservation down there at two miles deep. I remember reading a book about Lexington when I was a kid. I don't think many kids today have any inkling of how important the Battle of the Coral Sea was in thwarting Japanese advances into the Southwest Pacific. Heck, most kids today probably don't even know there is a Southwest Pacific!
