USS Dorado (SS-248)

The following men were lost while serving on USS Dorado (SS-248). 

Please note that the award of the Purple Heart for the men lost on this boat is not listed in most sources.  However, we have documentary proof that at least two Dorado men, Richard Holbrook Becker and Vernon Eugene Gardner, were awarded the medal for the sacrifice of their lives on this vessel. 

We are looking into ways to have all men lost on Dorado recognized with the award of the Purple Heart.  Please contact us if you would like to assist in this effort.
