Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
His first submarine was USS Thresher (SS-200) in 1943 where he served as engineer and diving officer. He received the Silver Star for his duties on Thresher.

Of the eight submarine war patrols in which he participated, some were on USS Spikefish during the latter period of the war. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Combat ?V for heroic service as assistant approach officer of USS Spikefish during the fourth war patrol of that vessel in the enemy Japanese-controlled waters of the Nanpo Shoto, Yellow Sea and East China Sea Areas from July 8 to August 31, 1945.
