U.S. Navy submarines
paid heavily for
their success in World War II.
A total of 374 officers and 3131 men are board
these 52 U.S. submarines still on "patrol."
We shall never forget that it was our submarines
that held the lines against the enemy, while our
fleets replaced losses and repaired wounds.
-Fleet Admiral C.W. Nimitz, U.S.N.
I can assure you that they went down fighting and
that their brothers who survived them took a
grim toll of our savage enemy to avenge their deaths.
