Honor Submariners Near Your Point Loma Home
Memorial Day is a special time for those who live in Point Loma. The Naval Base Point Loma hosts an annual Memorial Day Ceremony, to honor those who have died in our nation’s service. This year the event will begin at 10 a.m. on May 25th at the USS Roncador Submarine Memorial, located aboard the Submarine Base Complex of Naval Base Point Loma. Many Point Loma home owners have had their lives touched by servicemen and women and this tribute is a touching memoriam.
The Submarine Veterans of WWII and United States Submarine Veterans Inc., are dedicated to preserving the memory of the valiant Submariners of the United States Navy who lost their lives in the service of their country. The tribute will be held through the “Tolling of the Boats”, where the master of ceremonies names the submarines, number of crewmembers, and the dates lost at sea. This year’s guest speaker is Captain Paul A. Marconi, Commanding Officer, Naval Base Point Loma. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Submarine Veterans of WWII and USSVI will conduct a wreath laying ceremony in San Diego Bay.
