June 19, 1942 -- No Men Lost
A beautiful 1.75 inch hand-painted, brass coin honoring the men of World War II who gave their lives fighting for our country…
The front of the coin honors the USS S-27 SS-132. The back has the following quote:
"To the 374 officers and 3131 men of the Submarine Force who gave their lives in the winning of this war, 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 deaths."
-Vice Admiral C.A. Lockwood, Jr.
Commander Submarine Force, 1943 - 1946
