These prestigious awards were presented by the
U.S. Submarine Veterans, Inc.,
at their National Conventions
My heartfelt thanks to all the members of US Sub Vets Inc.
A special Accolade to the Judging Committee members,
Bill Lee, John Peters, Ron Martini and John Trubee.
The awards program of the U.S. Submarine Veterans, Inc., truly recogines the contributions of many Submarine Veteran members.
Members, who devote
much of their own personal resources and time for the good of the order.
The Ben Bastura award, especially recognizes support of our Creed.
"To Perpetuate the Memory of - - -".
I am most grateful for the honor of receiving two outstanding awards within three years..
Other, non tangible, rewards are received every week; from relatives of
US Submarine Men Lost during WWII, who want some detailed information on their
Uncle, Grandfather or Father. When received, these messages really "Make my Day".
Many thanks from
Paul W. Wittmer, Researcher
