Product Description

Eternal Patrol Reef



I am excited to announce that we, (SS) Challenge Coins, donated a coin for every boat that was lost to be attached to each Eternal Patrol Reef ball. I am honored and proud to be part of this Memorial Reef!
-Shelly








In Sarasota, Florida on 27 May 2018, the On Eternal Patrol Memorial Reef, the first and only undersea memorial to honor the submarines and their crews who remain on Eternal Patrol was dedicated.

Since 1900, the United States has lost sixty-five (65) submarines which have gone On Eternal Patrol, taking with them more than 4,000 officers and crew. Additionally, the United States lost more than 230 military personnel in actions, accidents, and other events that did not result in the loss of the boat.

The USS Scorpion SSN-589 lost 22 May 1968, is the last submarine the United States lost so, nearly 50 years to the day we lost her, it was an appropriate time to remember, honor and celebrate the history and sacrifice of the Silent Service. The On Eternal Patrol Reef is the first and only memorial dedicated to the entire submarine service in the environment in which these servicemen rest, the ocean.

A total of 66 Eternal Reef have been placed on a site permitted explicitly for this purpose: the On Eternal Patrol Memorial Reef. Sixty-five memorial reef balls represent the American submarines and her crews that have gone on Eternal Patrol. The Sixty-sixth memorial ball honors those submariners lost in non-sinking events.

In a brief period - less than ninety days - the On Eternal Patrol Memorial Reef will be teeming with new marine life and will remain forever as a living, growing ecosystem to honor the courageous submariners who made the ultimate sacrifice. We are forever grateful and will never forget.

Sixty-six (66) beautiful 1.75 inch hand-painted, brass coins. This set includes a coin for each submarine that is represented in the Eternal Patrol Memorial Reef (shown in order of date lost):
