USSVI Creed:

"To perpetuate the memory of our shipmates who gave their lives in the pursuit of their duties while serving their country. That their dedication, deeds and supreme sacrifice be a constant source of motivation toward greater accomplishments. Pledge loyalty and patriotism to the United States of America and its Constitution."

In addition to perpetuating the memory of departed shipmates, we shall provide a way for all Submariners to gather for the mutual benefit and enjoyment. Our common heritage as Submariners shall be strengthened by camaraderie. We support a strong U.S. Submarine Force.

The organization will engage in various projects and deeds that will bring about the perpetual remembrance of those shipmates who have given the supreme sacrifice. The organization will also endeavor to educate all third parties it comes in contact with about the services our submarine brothers performed and how their sacrifices made possible the freedom and lifestyle we enjoy today."

We are an organization with but one simple requirement
 to join — have you ever worn Dolphins?
(been designated, “Qualified in Submarines.”)

All of us have served their country in the Silent Service.

Click on this sentence, or the photo, below, to see how the float was constructed

To honor those who currently serve, and those who went before us, we built this
 float that we use in parades and static displays. The float is a 1/15 scale model  of the
 nuclear powered submarine USS Phoenix (SSN-702,) named after our city.
 The Phoenix was a Los Angeles-class submarine that was 362 feet long and,
 on the surface, had 32 feet of the ship under water.
