|On Eternal Patrol - Submariners Lost After World War II|
USS Thresher (SSN-593), lost with all hands on April 10, 1963.
The following is a listing of more than 700 personal memorial pages on this site for the men who are known to have been lost while in service in the US Submarine Force after the end of World War II.
Specifically, these are men who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. Submarine Force in the period from September 2, 1945, up to the present day.
Additionally, former submariners who were killed in the attacks committed against the United States on September 11, 2001, are included.
For information arranged by the name of the vessel, please view the listing of submarines that sustained losses after World War II. There is also an "Additional Losses" page for listings of men were lost during this period while serving on vessels that were not sunk.
Please note that we have recently updated this page to include hundreds of active-duty submariners that died in accidents, of illness, of suicide, or in other incidents. Much of this information was varified online through the National Archives - Defense Casualty Analysis System (DCAS) Public Use File, 1950-2005, 6/28/1950 - 5/28/2006 and 1/1/2006 - 12/31/2006. Many other men were added through the diligence of researcher Mary Mihovich. Names that have been added since December 2020 are preceeded with the letter "n" (for "new") in the first column of this listing. We are in the process of completing the memorial pages for each of these men.
