The Two Tangos Center in Greater Tulagi made news as it saved eight sailors from a submarine attack in the Tulagi Sea. The rescue took place in the early hours of the morning, and TTI teams responded quickly to a distress call from the attacked vessel.
“They were all, like, ‘help, help!’ and we were all like, ‘wait dude, take it easy,'” explained a junior cadet. “Then they were, like ‘oh no~,’ and we were all ‘no worries, dudes.’ Then we like, saw that there was a lady too, so we were all, ‘sorry dudette, we’ll totally rescue you too.'”
The entire crew of the freighter was rescued. Submarine attacks are a consistent problem in the Tulagi area, which is an active combat zone.
