The USS Sculpin (SS-191) was on her ninth war patrol in the Turk Island Area on November 19, 1943 when she was attacked by the enemy. Damage from depth-charges forced her to surface. Under heavy fire, FC3 Salava manned his gun until the Sculpin sunk. Although many of the crew were taken prisoner by the Japanese, FC3 Salava went down with the vessel. His remains were never recovered.

Bronze Star
The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Bronze Star Medal posthumously to Frank Salava, Firecontrolman Third Class, United States Navy for service as set forth in the following citation:

For meritorious service as Member of Crew of the USS Sculpin during the Ninth War Patrol of that vessel in the Turk Island Area, November 19,1943. After his ship had been severely damaged and forced to surface during a terrific enemy depth-charge attack, Salava instantly manned his gun despite the overwhelming fury of the enemy's five inch gun barrage and continued his persistant fire until the Sculpin succumbed to Japanese superior firepower. By his indomitable fighting spirit and unfaltering devotion to duty, Salava upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

For the President
James Forrestal
Secretary of the Navy
