Workers at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum in Manitowoc recently made a surprising discovery: the possessions of a World War II sailor left aboard the USS Cobia, a submarine on exhibit at the museum.

Those possessions have gone untouched for nearly 70 years. And it turns out the sailor who left the items is alive and well.

Building Supervisor Paul Rutherford has worked the USS Cobia for more than 30 years. And while performing routine maintenance in the torpedo room next to some bunks, he made a once-in-a-lifetime discovery.
