A Memorial Day Tribute

The USS Pasadena and the USS Pasadena Foundation placed a wreath at the USS Bowfin Museum and Park at the submarine memorial for the boats and men still on eternal patrol.  This is the second year that the Boat and the Foundation have held this ceremony.

In attendance from the USS Pasadena: Commanding Officer Doug Perry, Executive Officer Lee Sisco, Master Chief Jim Lyle (Chief of the Boat), Chief Hamilton, Senior Chief Drumheller, and other sailors and family members from the boat.

The names of all 54 boats lost at-sea were called-out and the bell was rung twice for each boat.
