Welcome

We are submarine sailors of the United States Navy. We manned submarines during war and peace. We have the oldest warfare specialty devices in the U.S. military: silver and gold dolphins.
Crash Dive Base is associated with United States Submarine Veterans, Inc. (USSVI) and serves the northeast Illinois, southeast Wisconsin area. That’s near the Great Lakes (IL) Naval Station area. We meet the third Saturday of the month at the Knollwood Sportsman’s Club, Rondout, IL (near Lake Bluff). Meetings start at 11:00. For more information on USSVI, click here:  www.ussvi.org
