In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that I report the death of USS Wahoo crewman James Allen. I first met Jim as a volunteer during the Wahoo Memorial on Oahu during 2007. While escorting him and his lovely wife, Jim regaled us with stories of his time in Wahoo, Sperry and Silversides. He was one of those rare individuals of whom it can be said they never met a stranger. Always upbeat and sharp as a tack, he wore the honor of having served in Wahoo with pride and dignity. My condolences and prayers go out to the family.



 

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.

Dedication

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