Mission Statement

USSVI Creed: "To perpetuate the memory of our shipmates who gave their lives in the pursuit of duties while serving their country. That their dedication, deeds and supreme sacrifice be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments. Pledge loyalty and patriotism to the United States of America and its Constitution."

Description

The United States Submarine Veterans Inc. was started by a group of United States Submarine Veterans of World War II. These men shared the vision that the sacrifices of those who gave their lives on submarines in the line of duty for their country will never be forgotten.

Mid-Atlantic Base is the local chapter of the USSVI in Delaware. Membership is open to residents of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia who have earned their dolphins. We meet at 11:30 on the third Saturday of each month at the Dover Sheraton Inn in Dover, Delaware. Guests are always welcome. Meetings usually include some topic of historic or informational nature related to the Silent Service and are followed by a luncheon and social time.
