Retired Captain David H. McClintock looking at the "Lost U.S. Submarines of World War II" Plaque alongside the Submariner Memorial in Marquette, Michigan. Barely visible on the right is the warhead of the Mark XIV torpedo donated by the USS SILVERSIDES Museum in Muskegon, Michigan.

The Plaque at the Memorial reads as follows:

This monument representing a WW II submarine is dedicated to Captain David H. McClintock USN, Marquette; to Captain B. Dulaney Claggett USN, Bethesda, MD; and to the officers and men of submarines DARTER and DACE.

Their contact reports and torpedoes changed the course of the largest naval engagement in history -- the Battle for Leyte Gulf, Phillippines, Oct. 23-26, 1944 -- which led to the end of the Japanese navy as an offensive force.

This is also dedicated to all American submariners, especially the more than 3600 who gave their lives to help preserve the freedoms we all enjoy today.

Dedicated May 27, 2000.

    Dedication of the Marquette Maritime Museum Annex, with a working U.S. Navy periscope installed in it, will take place September 2001. By then, the two 20mm guns will be mounted on top of the Memorial, the 4-foot wrought iron fence surrounding it will be in place, and the MK 14 torpedo on loan from the SILVERSIDES Museum in Muskegon will be in front of the Memorial.
