About Hampton Roads Base, USSVI
In addition to perpetuating the memory of departed shipmates, we shall provide a way for all Submariners to gather for mutual benefit and enjoyment.
We support a strong U.S. Submarine Force. Our common heritage as Submariners shall be strengthened by camaraderie.
Whether currently Active, Retired, Reserve or an Honorably discharged veteran, we are either past or present members of the elite undersea fighting force of the United States Navy.
As submarine sailors, we are all volunteers who passed stringent testing, challenging training and we proved our mettle upon earning the coveted designation "QUALIFIED IN SUBMARINES". Whether your dolphins are gold or silver, there is no expiration date on the back of that precious pin.
