Last Known Activity


At the Pearl Harbor Memorial Meeting in Wilson, BREAM sailor Joe Clark advised us that Don LeDuc, long-time member of both the Tarheel Chapter and Base, sailed recently on his Eternal Patrol. The following may be used in lieu of his official obituary. We have contacted his family and extended our condolences. We plan to provide a USSVWWII bronze marker and our traditional Book of Remembrance to his family.

Chaplain Bill

(Greenbackville, VA) Donald LeDuc, 86, sailed on his Eternal Patrol, from his home in Greenbackville, VA, on 21 September 2010. He was a faithful member of both U.S. Submarine Veterans of World War II (card No. 08643) and U.S. Submarine Veterans Inc. (card No. 2323). After 3-1/2 months in a nursing home, coping with several strokes, he returned home where he was surrounded by his loving family before his peaceful passing.

Don was a radioman aboard two submarines during World War II: USS BREAM (SS-243) and USS BASHAW (SS-241). He qualified aboard BREAM in 1944.

Survivors include his widow Doris.

At Don's request, there was no memorial service. However, his family is planning a special dedication in the spring, featuring a flagpole at a local marina. The pole, with a suitable dedicatory plaque and USSVWWII bronze marker, will overlook scenic Chesapeake Bay.

Don's oar is at rest.
