USS SS-28 (SS-133) Memorial, Wilmington – North Carolina Thursdays May 28, 2020

For this week’s North Carolina Thursdays post, I focused on USS S-28 (SS-133) memorial. It wasn’t easy to find as several sites didn’t include where the memorial was located. I started with this post from 2018: World War II Submarine Memorials by State July 30, 2018. After doing some more research, I found this marker: https://docsouth.unc.edu/commland/monument/736/. The submarine was located in 2017 (see YouTube videos below). I included a lot of the links for USS North Carolina Battleship Museum, Wilmington – North Carolina Thursdays January 9, 2020 below as it’s near the Battleship North Carolina.

No information listed at http://militaryhonors.sid-hill.us/mem/state-n7.htm. Here’s the USS Submarine Veterans website: https://www.ussvi.org/ and the On Eternal Patrol website for the submarine: http://www.oneternalpatrol.com/uss-s-28-133.htm.
