Some sources mistakenly omit Russell Willie Lee from their lists of men lost with USS Lagarto. The origin of this discrepancy is found in U. S. Submarine Losses (1946 and 1963, although he is listed in 1949) and in Christley. His individual personnel file in the National Personnel Records Center, St. Louis, Navy Casualty, DPAA listings, and muster rolls of USS Lagarto all confirm his being lost with his Lagarto shipmates.
The U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War II assigned USS Lagarto (SS-371)
to the State of Wisconsin.
