“Any time, any where, always ready, always there.” Official Navy Submarine motto We, who survived World War II and were privileged to rejoin our loved ones at home, salute those gallant officers and men of our  submarines who lost their lives in that long struggle. We shall never forget that it was our submarines that held the lines against  the enemy while our fleets replaced losses and repaired wounds.                                  C.W.

At the Muskogee War Memorial Park: Home of the USS Batfish, visitors may explore a World War II legend, the USS Batfish. Unseen and unheard while stalking its prey in World War II,  the USS Batfish claimed over 14 kills, including a record breaking three enemy submarines within a 76 hour period making the Batfish the most successful submarine killer to this day.   Click Here to go to the Museum

WW2SUB & WW2OK 

The USS Batfish and USS Oklahoma Amateur Radio Club is an ARRL affiliated club comprised of a small but dedicated group of hams that have been meeting at the boat since 2010. The charter of the club is to do more than just talk on the radio. As a group, and individually, we try to do what we can to support the boat, and the museum. We are now the largest, most active group of volunteers the museum has. Click Here For More Information
Despite the huge success of the USN submarine fleet during the World War Two, America lost 52 Submarines and more then 3,500 Officers and men. Since there were only 16,000 men in the whole submarine service during the war, this was a casualty rate of nearly 22% or 1.2 men for every 5 that served. Of all branches of military services, this was the highest casualty rate of any service. Each Submarine’s name is a link to the web page of the submarines page at the United States Navy’s Naval and heritage comand where it gives all the information on each of those ships lost during world war II. There you will find out information about the patrols the Submarine accomplished, details of its demise and the roster of the ships crew.
