Details: SUBVETS Groton will join our nation in remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country by hosting a memorial service for all those submariners lost at sea, especially the USS Scorpion SS589, which was lost on May 22, 1968. This annual event, which takes place on the grounds of the US SUBVETS WWII National Memorial East, is a moving remembrance of those submarines and submariners lost at sea.
