USS Carbonero Members Hold Tolling Of The Boats On Oct. 13

  • Thursday, September 6, 2012

Members of the USS Carbonero Base, U.S. Submarine Veterans, will honor the memories of over 4,000 submariners lost in the line of duty in a formal public ceremony to recognize their service, on Oct. 13, at Chattanooga National Cemetery, beginning at 11 a.m. 

Service in submarines is an inherently dangerous business, and since the founding of the U.S. submarine force in 1900, 65 submarines and over 4,000 men have given up their lives. The great majority of these young lives were lost during WWII when 52 submarines were lost.

It is the duty of the members of United States submarine veterans to publicly honor them so that their gallant service and sacrifice is never forgotten. 

The general public is invited to join in honoring these fallen heroes of the U.S. submarine force.

United States Submarine Veterans is a National Veterans Fraternal Organization chartered in 1964 and recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(19) entity. With over 13,000 members and 150 chapters (bases) nationwide, it is the largest organization of submarine qualified veterans in the world.
