Robert Ballard says he found the P-T 109 in 12 hundred feet of water near the Solomon Islands.

Unlike the Titanic, items from PT-109 will not be brought to the surface.
Ballard says he has an understanding with the Kennedy family and others that this wreck will be left alone.
The boat sank in August 1943. Ballard says it looks like a glancing blow sheared off part of the stern.
Kennedy was awarded two medals for helping a wounded crewman make it to a nearby island.
