Navy Salvages Two Cannons From CSS Georgia-- Part 2

The first cannon was raised July 15 and the second one on July 21.  Once all are brought ashore (they have found four cannons) technicians will support field inerting (making them non explosive) of the unexploded shells.

The SUPSALF team will be on site (at Old Fort Jackson below Savannah, Georgia) through October.  This team is responsible for Navy ocean engineering, including salvage, in water ship repairs, towing, driving safety, equipment maintenance and procurement.

The letters stand for Supervisor of Salvage and Diving.
