in two groups.

Not all intact boats listed are "memorial boats".
They exist...they are listed
Sites comprised of whole and intact submarines that have been restored
or are in the process of restoration.
Sites displaying only submarine artifacts.
|WEBMASTER NOTE: Not all of the references in GROUP TWO are about "memorials" in the accepted sense of the term.. Some refer to whatever is known about the locations of "parts of submarines" (aka artifacts). Nevertheless for anyone who served on a particular boat that is associated with a given "artifact" then that part of his submarine is important to him. ... and that makes it a "memorial" of sorts. Don't you agree?|

"This theme study has been prepared for the Congress and the National Park System Advisory Board in partial fulfillment of the requirements of Public Law 95-348, August 18, 1978. The purpose of the theme study is to evaluate surviving World War II warships that saw action in the Pacific against Japan and to provide a basis for recommending certain of them for designation as National Historic Landmarks.
During the course of this study more than 40 surviving warships and merchantmen dating from World War II were identified and visited. Twenty-five of these were found likely to meet the criteria of the National Historic Landmarks Program and are represented by inventory forms in this study."
