USS Sturgeon (SS-187)
USS Sturgeon (SS-187) was a Salmon-class submarine laid down 27 October, 1936. After commissioning in 1938, Sturgeon operated off the US West Coast and from Pearl Harbor. In the Philippines at the outbreak of hostilities, Sturgeon commenced her first war patrol the next day. She would make a total of eleven patrols between December, 1941, and August, 1944, after which she was sent to California for overhaul, then transferred to the Atlantic for training duty. Decommissioned in November, 1945, Sturgeon was sold and scrapped in 1948. Over her eleven patrols, she sank seven ships, with four more probables and a dozen others at least damaged.
