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.

Vice Admiral C.A. Lockwood, Jr. Commander Submarine Force, 1943-1946

3,617 Submariners paid the ultimate sacrifice that we may enjoy our freedom. Let us not forget them.
