There are three major websites devoted to WWII submariners. These are all that are known to me - there may be others. Let me know if you find another   Contact

I have listed the three websites here: 

The website of Paul W. Wittmer
Paul is a WWII SubVet with an excellent website that basically mirrors the contents of the "official" SubVetsWWII website. And he has done a good job of it too. Click the TABLE of CONTENTS for submarine stories and history beyond numbering.

What is the purpose of this page ?   A statement from the Paul Wittmer website "Primary Objective", as shown below, works for me.   It is copied from his website and is a statement of why that website was created.

"THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE is to provide a historic perspective of the United States submarine men who served in World War II, and to foster general public awareness of life aboard submarines during World War II."
