USS Scorpion, a Skipjack class nuclear-powered attack submarine homeported in Norfolk, Virginia began a Mediterranean deployment in February 1968. The following May 22nd, while homeward bound from that deployment, she was lost with her entire crew of 99 brave men some 400 miles southwest of the Azores. In October 1968, her remains were found on the sea floor over 10,000 feet below the surface.
This memorial is dedicated to the men of Scorpion who are on eternal patrol and to the men of today's submarine force who continue to sail in harm's way in defense of our nation.
