Here’s the Redwood City story

Basically, a Soviet submarine sank somewhere near Hawaii in very deep water in the 70s. The CIA got the job of hauling it up for the code books and nuclear weapons. Oh, and the submarine. While they were pulling it up, it fell apart. The CIA established a base at Redwood City’s port to handle whatever was pulled up. At one point they had to work picking up pieces of rotting meat, standins for the remains of Soviet sailers. Other Soviet sailors were buried at sea. The ceremonies were taped and later handed over to Soviet authorities.
