Remembering the Service of Submariners

Groton, Connecticut, is home to one of the largest submarine facilities in the world.  Groton and the surrounding area is home to large numbers of active duty and retired submariners.  This memorial is dedicated to all the American submariners who lost their lives in World War II.

It's a very emotional sort of place and the latest research show that people are more and more visiting and paying tribute to all the soldiers who fought and died during WWII!

These kind of memorials are very important to remind people of those who have given their lives for their country in the past. The Americans seem to be very good at putting up memorials like this. I wish we were as well.
