In 1916, before the U.S. entered World War I, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt spurred the Navy to design an effective anti-submarine vessel. And by 1917 the Navy did just that, delivering the SC-1-class submarine chaser. Now, nearly 100 years later, you can deliver one of your own!
