USS Torsk SS-423 Guestbook





Comments:
While recently visiting family in Baltimore I had the opportunity to tour the Torsk. I was impressed and amazed to learn of her service. As the son of a WW II veteran, I can only imagine the bravery of each crew member. To the greatest generation who served, I sincerely thank you for protecting our freedom.

While serving n the USS Carp, a neighboring ship of the Torsk in Squadron 6 in Norfolk Va in 1967, Captain Higginbotham, of the Torsk, participated in my final qualification in submarines before I received my dolphins.

Torsk is truly an amazing ship. I was one of the Maryland Naval Militia cadets that help bring the Torsk to Baltimore September 1972. This was just prior to me going on active duty in the Navy. She was towed by US Army Tugs while several of us actually rode the Torsk from Portsmith Va. to Baltimore. We were greeted by several small boats and as we started pulling into the dock. I placed a broom on the periscope above the sail indicating a traditional: Clean Sweep”. I plan to visit when I come to Baltimore in April.

I was a Tin Can sailor (USS Ingraham DD 694) but in 1967 we were doing ops off the VAcape with the Torsk. Her captain invited our crew to come over for a couple of days during the ops. Myself and another crazy sonarman, James A. Pearce, from Philly, were the only takers. The captain and crew were very cordial with the two of us and we learned a lot about passive sonar and submarine torpedo attacks. We were permitted to scope out our ship prior to a torpedo run. I've waited for a long time to tell her crew "Thank you." It was a great experience!!!
