Admiral Rindskopf died recently (Sep 27, 1917 - Jul 27, 2011). Who was he? He was the U.S. Navy's youngest sub commander during WWII--his sub, the U.S.S. Drum, sank at least 15 Japanese vessels.
NOTE: Admiral Rindskopf was cremated, and his ashes scattered in the Pacific Ocean: a fitting finale, don't you think, for this American hero?
