Message from Vice Admiral C.A. Lockwood Jr. Commander Submarine Force
US Pacific Fleet
To those whose contribution meant loss of sons, brothers or husbands in this war. I pay my most humble respect
and extend my deepest sympathy. As to the 374 officers and 3131 men of the submarine force, I can assure you that they
went down fighting and that their brothers who survived them took a grim toll of our savage enemy to avenge their death.
MAY GOD REST
