Other Comments:
To submariners, he was a superb Naval Officer who is arguably best known for his command of the USS Triton during her monumental circumnavigation of the oceans. Other shipmates may say that it was his influence via the book Run Silent, Run Deep that pointed them in the direction of service in submarines. Still others will note his contributions to the preservation of submarine history through tireless appearances in numerous quality submarine documentaries following his retirement.

Surprisingly to some, Captain Beach, while proud of his book, was not a fan of the motion picture Run Silent Run Deep.  In an interview for All Hands magazine, Beach was asked:  "How involved were you in the making of the movie? Did you have any input in that?" Beach responded, "None whatsoever. I was unhappy with the movie. If you read the book and look at the movie carefully - one right after the other - you'll see that the movie has little resemblance to Run Silent, Run Deep. I mean, I think they had the script pretty well written before they even read the book. They only wanted the title - they simply bought the book for the title. Now, Ingrid, that's my wife, says I shouldn't talk like this. She thinks I should say "Oh, it was a great movie. Go see it!" Because the more they see the movie, the more they'll want to buy the book. But I really can't say that, because it's not true to the Navy that I saw and tried to describe."

Memories For This Unit

Chain of Command
Beach was appointed to the United States Naval Academy in 1935 by Senator Hiram Johnson of California. He served as regimental commander in his first year class. Beach was named the midshipman who had done the most to promote naval spirit and loyalty in his regiment when he graduated second out of 576 in his class in 1939.
