USS Casimir Pulaski (SSBN-633)

The Story Of A Cold War Warrior

In Memory...

This page honors the crewmembers of the USS Casimir Pulaski who have departed us in body, but not in spirit.  The United States Navy's Submarine Service has, from the beginning, always been a volunteer force.  No one has ever served onboard a submarine who did not want to be there.  Spare a thought for these shipmates and their surviving families and give thanks in your own way that there are young men willing to follow in their footsteps today.  These men were truly heroes.
