Wahoo Remembered

This Memorial Day I had a chance to pay tribute to the men of Wahoo in a special way due to the efforts of good friend Jeff Porteous. Last week he forwarded a special flag he had made to honor Wahoo. It is a replica of her battle flag with the boat's name, hull number and date of loss. It really is striking. We've hung it outside our home for Memorial Day and will return it to Jeff when we meet for our r/c modeling group's annual summer fun run. Thanks, Jeff!

The War Fish Blog encourages all its readers to have a wonderful day, tempered with honor and respect for all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy. For a list of those lost aboard Wahoo, click here:



About Me

The first 'grown up' book Paul Crozier ever read was "War Fish" by George Grider. Since then he has spent most of his life researching the U.S. Submarine Force in WWII and USS Wahoo (SS-238) in particular.


This blog is dedicated to all who have served in the U.S. Submarine Force. Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
