I googled my father's name this afternoon because I was thinking of him and missing him. He passed away in January of 2000. Lo and behold, google took me to a picture of several men sitting on the Torsk and there was my father!! I can not begin to explain to you what a gift this picture was to me today. One of those days when you are missing a loved one so much that it hurts and there he was smiling at me when he was a young man. Thank you for posting these pictures and for this web site. I plan on spending more time here looking through all the information. What a great site!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Not sure you're aware but "Torsk" means cod in swedish so it was pretty hilarious to end up here after doing som research on cod fishing in the baltic sea. Anyways, a great site I found myself stuck on for quite some time.

I look forward to touring the Torsk. My Father was stationed on the Torsk. He was on board when Torsk completed its 9,000 on April 11, 1960. In later years my Father served on board the USS Pargo SSN 650. I followed in my Father�s footsteps and joined the Submarine Service. My second submarine I served on was the USS Pargo SSN 650. I am proud to be a second generation submariner serving on the same submarine my father served on wearing the Submarine Dolphins my Father earned in 1955. My son is now serving in the submarine services (3rd Generation submariner) wearing his grandfather�s dolphins. We look forward to walking on the deck of the submarine that launched a family tradition.

My wifes father served on the Torsk, Robert Wagner. We know little about his activities in the navy and would love to hear any details of the boat and his tour. We'd also like to thank those responsable for preserving the memories and ship for all to share. If all goes well we're planing a trip this fall to visit the USS Torsk. Thanks again!

My father, Lloyd Cornell, served on the Torsk during WWII. I just started reading "Sink 'Em All" by Vice Admiral Charles Lockwood, which was among his book collection. This led me to do a little research on my Dad's submarine. So I found your site, and wanted to check in. Great job!

What a patriotic treat to visit one of our retired subs. I thoroughly enjoyed looking about. Made my red American blood flow! God Bless the U.S.!!

I also served on the U.S.S. Canisteo and remember the Torsk still out there playing war games. I was on the port lookout. I saw her scope disappear about 400 yds or so and then later we felt Canisteo rise out of the water a little bit. Torsk ripped a gash about 25 feet into our hull. She came up off of our starboard bow and it was not a pretty site. That incident happened near Halifax Nova Scochia. We spent 2 to 3 months at drydock in Portsmouth. The worst duty i ever went thru in that drydock.
