In addition to presenting
information on the submariners themselves, we maintain family contact
information for the relatives of the men we seek to honor. This information
is kept private and confidential, and is used only in the event that
developments concerning the lost vessels occur.
Since 2005, eight lost U.S.
Navy World War II submarines have been found, and our database has been instrumental in
informing the families of the final resting place of their loved ones.

to honor, please
Please note that under the
"Lost" column, all known personnel losses are included, not just those that
occurred at the time of the loss of the vessel.
*Please note that USS Bass (SS-164)
is included on this list because of the large number of men lost, even
though the vessel herself was not lost.
**Although decommissioned at the time of her loss,
USS G-2 (SS-27) is included here because of the loss of life.
***Divers descended to the wreck of
USS S-26 soon after she sank. Tim Taylor re-discovered the wreck in September 2014.
