Tolling of the Boats

Honoring our fallen submarine heroes is
fundamental to our creed as members of
U.S. Submarine Veterans (USSVI), which
is…

“To perpetuate the memory of
our shipmates who gave their
lives in the pursuit of their duties
while serving their country.”

 USS Argonaut (SS-166)

Lost on Jan 10, 1943 with the loss of 102
officers and men off Rabaul, on her 3rd
war patrol. While attacking a convoy,
she torpedoed a Jap destroyer who
along with 2 other destroyers depth
charged her. As she tried to surface, the
destroyers sunk her by gun fire.

 USS Swordfish (SS-193)

Lost on Jan 12,1945 with the loss of 89
officers and men somewhere near
Okinawa, on her 13th war patrol.

on her 2nd war patrol. She ran hard
aground on a reef and radioed for help.
The entire crew was rescued by a Dutch
ship after they scuttled her.

 USS S-26 (SS-131)

Lost on Jan 24,1942 with the loss of 46
officers and men in the Gulf of Panama,
on her 2nd war patrol. She was rammed
by the USS PC-460 and sunk within
seconds. The CO, XO and one lookout
on the bridge, were the only survivors.
