Come see our newest exhibit,

  Those Who Cared For Those Who Served

 Please join us as we open the USS Silversides Submarine Museums newest Exhibit — “Those Who Cared For Those Who Served.”

Military service can be a stressful time for all involved. The USS Silversides will honor those Corpsman, Chaplains and the Medical Services in all branches of the military who provided support to those served.  This is a group which often goes unrecognized.  It is our pleasure to highlight those who cared for those who served.
