33RD WWII SUBMARINE VETS ANNUAL MEMORIAL
On 31 October 2021, the museum hosted its 33rd Annual WWII Submarine Veterans of WWII Memorial. Instead of a week long event as they have been in the past, the museum held a one day event with 100 invited guests. Tony Faella and his wife Betty, and several WWII Veteran widows enjoyed a great day at the museum and a moving ceremony at the Base Chapel. It was held there due to bad weather. Below are three photos sent sent by Keith Post. Photos (left to right): Tony Faella and Young Unknown Petty Officer, Blanche Casavant and Captain Bohner, USN, and Keith Post. Tony served as an Electrician's Mate First Class on the USS Spearfish (SS 190) during WW II and made 5 combat war patrols. Mrs. Casavant's husband, Paul Leo, served as an Electrician's Mate on an extensive list of submarines and naval surface craft during WW II as well as some boats during the Cold War. Paul departed on Eternal Patrol on 31 August 2018.
