"On Eternal Patrol," through USS Bowfin Submarine
Museum & Park, is honored to be associated with The Wahoo
Wahoo Project is an independent, multinational project
created and developed by Bryan MacKinnon, grandnephew of Dudley "Mush"
Morton, last Commanding Officer of USS Wahoo (SS-238).
Project's mission is to locate and identify America's most
World War II submarine, the USS Wahoo. The
objective is a non-intrusive search
at the site where she is
believed to rest with her gallant crew of eighty men in Soya (La
Perouse) Strait between Hokkaido, Japan and Sakhalin, Russia.
With the successful search accomplished, these are some of the desired outcomes:
Remembrance of the combatants on all
sides who gave their lives for their countries
The bringing of closure to the families
of the men who were lost
The ascertainment of the final hours of the submarine and her crew
Acknowledgement of the teamwork over the
decades it took to find her
The assurance of adequate protection against inappropriate salvage operations
Many other people have played
major roles in the search for Wahoo, a few of whom are:
George Logue, brother of Robert B. Logue, who was lost on USS
Satuoru Saga, Ensign, Imperial Japanese Navy, Retired
Vice Admiral Kazuo Ueda, Japan Maritime
Self-Defense Force, Retired
Paul Crozier, Wahoo researcher
