My great Grandfather aka Pop Pop served on the ship in 1945. His name was Rupert Castleberry. One of the kindest men and loving grandfathers! He passed away just shy of his 100th birthday and loved a long healthy life! He settled down in Texas where he spent his last years. Would love to hear about other family members that may have had family that served with him at the time!

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.

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.
