   USS Flier (SS-250)

Memorial Ceremony

 

The memorial ceremony for the men of USS Flier was held on August 12-13, 2010, at the Great Lakes Naval Memorial and Museum (GLNMM), located in Muskegon, Michigan. 

 

GLNMM is the home of the historic submarine USS Silversides, which is of the same class and general appearance as USS Flier.  An exhibit dedicated to Flier is under development at the Museum.

 

USS Silversides is the most decorated
surviving submarine from World War II, and is
a floating tribute to the many men who remain
“on eternal patrol.”
