If you love submarines, you'll love SubFest--a four-day event hosted by the Wisconsin Maritime Museum and the city of Manitowoc, slated for July 12-14. Bring the whole family for music, food, sidewalk sales, kid-friendly activities, parades. And, don't miss the lighted-boat parade and fireworks on Saturday evening, July 13. The draw for this event is, and always will be, tours of the USS Cobia (SS-245), a WWII submarine, hosted by qualified submariners acting as your tour guides. Visit the Wisconsin Maritime Museum's website at www.wisconsinmaritime.org for a schedule of events, and get your hotel reservations early!
Calling all qualified submarine sailors!
Come and join fellow sailors in support of today’s submarine force, to honor fellow sub sailors on eternal patrol and to relive your days aboard the subs with others who also cherish these memories.

We are a new base (just two years old) that meets strategically on the border of Illinois and Wisconsin. We are one of 162 bases located throughout the country. This local USSVI serves veterans throughout northern Illinois and southwest Wisconsin. Don't let the name USS Illinois Base fool you. We are bi-state submarine veterans group serving one cause—to preserve the history and future of a strong submarine force.
