In January 1954, Mamie christened the USS Nautilus, the world's first operational nuclear submarine. The ship served proudly until 1980. The sub is now a museum piece, on permanent exhibit in Connecticut at the Submarine Force Library and Museum. That's why I was surprised by what I found in a parking lot at a shopping mall in Florida.
