From that last link,
The Navy has no plans to salvage or enter the Wahoo wreck. Naval tradition has long held that the sea is a fitting final resting place for Sailors lost at sea. The Sunken Military Craft Act protects military wrecks, such as Wahoo, from unauthorized disturbance.Here is an extremely cool site showing the photos of the Wahoo, in her grave several hundred feet down. You can click on the periscope handles to move forward a page or back. Very interesting stuff to a history and WW2 fanatic like myself.
While in Orlando I had the opportunity to go to a pretty interesting tourist trap, a Titanic museum. A more proper name for this place would be "museum about a ship called the Titanic featuring artifacts from her sister ships and many reproductions". It had a lot of interesting photos and artifacts, like I said, from her sister ship "Olympic". There were a lot of films to be seen there as well. I think it was $20 - well worth it for a decent educational couple of hours.
I remembered that just last week I had watched a show about the Titanic and the finding of her in that watery grave 12,000 feet below in the cold North Atlantic. The documentary said that the person who found the Titanic originally stated that he did not wish to bring up anything out of respect to those who perished in her. Later, others (mostly millionaires looking for treasure) said "screw that" and started picking the Titanic clean of anything they could get their hands on. There are many places you can view Titanic articles, made all the more popular by the success of the recent movie. The Museum of Science and Industry has an exhibition going on right now. If Carl started out now on the CTA he may get there by football season.
The internal debate I have is the following: when is it OK to start bringing up artifacts off these sunken boats to let people see them? It is ever OK?
I am positive that bodies were disturbed when the Titanic began to be picked clean. How could there be any doubt that Roman Galleys, Spanish Galleons and other boats have not had bodies disturbed during archaeological dives or treasure scavenging?
The Navy, as evidenced by the quote above says "no way Jose" on the diving of their ships buried at sea. Damn I would so love to know how the Wahoo got sunk. But I don't have a relative in there either.
Personally, I am going to be cremated - I don't think that there is any real value to anybody to keep my body around after the organs are donated. Along these lines, I would love to see dives on these old military ships buried at sea to determine what happened. But different people hold different beliefs than myself about the bodies of their loved ones and I respect that too.
I guess it is one of those things where there really isn't a right answer.
