KODIAK, Alaska—The U.S. Navy wants to know what lies beneath the waters near Kodiak Island.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports the search will be for any World War II-era unexploded ammunition that was dumped or dropped around Kodiak, Dutch Harbor and Kiska. The latter was occupied by the Japanese during the war.
Kodiak Military History Museum Director Dave Ostlund says there were live-fire exercises in Kodiak.
There was also a live-fire salute for a general in 1944. And shells were fired to warn a ship carrying Gov. Ernest Gruening away from a minefield.
