52 Boats Memorial

The San Diego Chapter of SUBVETS is moving forward with a memorial to the 52 subs lost in WWII. This will be at the Brac'd NTC San Diego - now called Liberty Station.

They have a fascinating history of the American Liberty Elm trees being used in the memorial.

This one was not expected. SSN 785 will be named after the recently retired Senator from the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Former Petty Officer 3rd Class and Capt in USMC, he was on the SASC and Sea-Power subcommittee. Loyal part of the submarine friendly VA-CT-RI delegations.
