The Cavalla Historical Foundation and the American Undersea Warfare Center hosted a heartwarming Submarine Memorial Service at Seawolf Park in Galveston, TX on 21 April. Dozens of Cavalla Reunion participants and visitors attended this free event and listened as submariners who sacrificed some or all for their fellow Americans.
