52 U.S. Navy submarines were lost at sea during World War II. 3,505 submariners lost their lives.
At NTC Liberty Station, the 52 Boats Memorial remembers the sacrifice of these men.
The unique memorial runs along two beautiful walkways, and consists of 52 American Liberty Elm trees, 52 flags and 52 black granite markers. The history of each submarine and the names of lost crew members are recounted for future generations to remember.

Remembering my 2nd cousin, Walter “Earl” Blaylock and the crew of the USS Pickerel this Memorial Day 2017. Thank you all for your ultimate sacrifice for our freedom here in the United States of America.
