Comments: Thanks for all the memories. My brother,Jim Butterworth, was on war patrols 4,5,6 & 7 and told me some of the stories. Your website is so valuable, especially when the veterans of that era are slowly turning to 270 degrees and heading west on their final patrol. My brother is still going strong at 86.

Comments: I took my entrance exam for the Navy aboard the Batfish while she was stationed in New Orleans (nov. 1963). It all started with a post card "Join the submarine service" Soon a phone call from a Chief petty Officer asking if he could visit both me and my parents. This Chief, personally visited the house, personally took me to visit the Batfish, personally took me for a physical and personally took me to be sworn in. This man "wanted me in the Navy! after 7 years of service, I owe both him and the Batfish for 7 years of service, friends, and fun!

Comments: Over the past few years I have been working with Gil to help secure a vintage torpedo for the SS310. This was done out of respect for the old boat and in support of the great job that Gil continually accomplished in restoring the Batfish to her glory days. Vice Admiral Guy Reynolds, a submarine officer of many years, now retired, was instrumental in assisting with obtaining a torpedo by using his rank, reputation and friendship with government personnel in charge of ordanance issuance for historic events. I served aboard the Batfish SS310 late 1955 through mid year of 1956 in Key West, Florida before being transferred to a new boat to finish out my hitch. Regardless of ther other boats I served on, the Batfish will always be "my boat." I am proud to still be a part of her maintenance and will always do my best to assist where, and when I can. Best regards, JMBradley - USN-ET1 SS310

Comments: Visited the USS Batfish(boat) on 9-9-09 on my way to attend my ship's reunion in Branson,Mo(USS John R.Craig DD-885- target). I was the only person there at the time and had the run of the boat to myself. I truly enjoyed my visit and I think I took a picture of everything I saw both on the boat and in and around the museum. Y'all are doing a wonderful job in preserving this piece of Navy history and I look forward to coming back when the deck repairs are complete. I live in Georgetown,Texas and not only saw the Batfish in Oklahoma,but also went to N.Little Rock,Arkansas on my way home and visited the USS Razorback. When I told my friends I was going to visit submarines in Oklahoma and Arkansas, they were a little doubtful to say the least. Keep up the good work and thanks very much from a tin-can sailor.

Comments: I joined the Navy October '62, during the Cubian Missle Crisis. Spent 26 years in, retired in '88. 14 of those years were at sea on diesel boats. The rest of the time in was spent as a Fleet Diesel Inspector, inspecting diesel engines on SS, SSN, SSBN and various targets. When they would break'um I'd go fix'um. I am looking forward to visiting Batfish. My first love was a Fairbanks boat. It will be great visiting another Fairbanks boat. I plan to be there in September, can't wait. Kudo's on the web site.

Comments: Pretty nice. How come you don't mention the history programs you guys do? I looked all over this website and can't find any info on when the next one is. I hope it wasn't just a one time thing because you guys put together a great program with that. I've been to the boat 3 times and last August we got lucky and happened to see the history program. Man, it's a difference of night and day to see what life was like instead of an empty boat. The crew made me feel welcome and like I had stepped back in time. It's got to be one of the neatest things I've ever seen. I hope it wasn't just a one time thing but since it's not mentioned on here my guess is it probably was. Joe

Comments: Everytime I visit the War Memorial, I am in awe of the "Batfish." To me, she is a "Grand Ole' Lady" that flew her Colors Proudly and with Honor! Those who serve aboard a Sub, to me, are very Special, as it would take a lot of "Guts" to go aboard, knowing it could mean a Metal Casket! I "Salute all, who have and will serve aboard a Sub; Especially this Grand Lady! I have had the Honor of being a part of Posting Colors @ one of the Sub-Vets Re-union, and I was deeply touched, by the Ceremony! Especially when names are read and the Bell tolls for the sub-vets who passed into a Greater Reward, as they rode the Waves, aboard this Grand Old Lady, and paid the Ultimate Price, for her and this Great Nation! May God continue to watch over those still serving aboard Submarines and those who have already served! I commend all Staff and Volunteers, who continue to serve in caring for The Muskogee War Memorial, and the USS Batfish! Great Job, Well Done!

Comments: Great submarine, and history. My father served on SS 404 Spikefish during 54 - 59', PO1 fire control officer, have heard many wonderful past memories he's shared with me and my brothers as we grew up. Question, Is the Batfish still in the river, or is she now laying on the grassy hard ground as pictured within website? Seems sad and disrespectful for such a great ship to be sitting on the ground rusting w/ decay.. Wish I lived in Oklahoma, I would volunteer, but unfortunately I live in Florida. Take care, TH

Comments: Great web site. In 1972, at the age of 14, I was visiting my grandmother who lived in Ozark, Arkansas. Her house sat high on a bluff overlooking the Arkansas River. One afternoon, I noticed the Batfish in the river. I ran to tell my Grandmother and Grandfather. They both dismissed my claim as a joke. When they finally walked the edge of the bluff and saw the Batfish, the look on their faces was priceless. It' nice to see that the Batfish is being cared for and it's history is remembered.

Comments: Thank you for all you've done to honor our WWII SubVets. My dad, Irwin "Jim" Stewart, was a TM3 on the USS Archer-Fish (SS 311) when she sank the Shinano. In fact, the folding Archer-Fish port sign in your museum actually hung in my house as I grew up. Jim "laid his oars to rest" last year, but his die hard love of the 'smoke boats" and her crews lives on in me, a man who was inoculated at an early age by Jim to love his country and appreciate those who serve at her defense. I salute all of you who have/still serve today!

Comments: I read the book on the USS Batfish, it was very good.Some day, I will get out to Oklahoma to see it. Iam an old U.S. Army veteran- fought the Communist in S.Vietnam 1969.So reading and learning about Submarines, is all new to me. I salute those swabees that did duty in the submarines, and the ones that gave their lives.And I thank the guys that got the Batfish as a Memorial. I have a question, Are there any WW2 Batfish veterans in Massachusetts? Bob Gouveia , Burlington Ma.

Comments: I plan on bringing my 13 year old son and a couple of his friends to tour the U.S.S. Batfish as soon as possible. I can't wait to show the kids real history, and see it for myself. I have a daughter in the Navy, on the newly commissioned Geo. H. W. Bush! Thank you to all the brave men who served on the Batfish and in WWII. Sincerely, Jenni Miniaci

Comments: I think that touring the Batfish was so awesome. That everytime I visit Muskogee, we take a tour. It is usually a time that my siblings and I get together and have some cheap fun.
