Naval Weapons Station, 800 Seal Beach Blvd., Bldg. 6, Seal Beach, CA
We meet at 1100 on the 3rd Saturday of each month.
Located just north of U.S. Submarine Veterans Highway on the exterior grounds of Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station sits a “Living Memorial.” This tree-lined, World War II Memorial, dedicated in 1977 pays tribute to the 52 lost submarines and 3505 men who perished. The site is also the home of two other monuments dedicated to the Cold War losses of Thresher and Scorpion. Click on the picture to go to the website.
Welcome to the Los Angeles-Pasadena/USSVI base website. We hope you find something here that interests you and that you share your visit with family and friends, especially submarine veterans. We are always interested in visitor comments and suggestions on how to improve this site.
